A few weeks ago, I snagged some time to myself and creating something very satisfying. Thanks to all 3 napping at the same time. **Cue angels singing** I'm all for making our home feel more homey. But I don't want it to feel cluttered or tacky. Less is more when you have children. Amen?!
So a while back, like a while while back, I painted this piece of scrap wood. Edged it out in some green paint with full intentions of painting something clever on it.
I found a font I liked then drew it out with my pencil onto the board.
Then I just painted over the lines and filled in the letters with some black paint. Pretty simple.
Tossed it up there on the mantel for the time being and called it a Happy Day! I thought afterwards that maybe I'll sand it down in some spots. But I like the crisp edges right now. I'm sure she'll get moved soon, maybe somewhere with my little bird trio. Who knows.
What do you think?
