Ok. Another love to add to my “crazy~abouts”: Signs. Any kind. (sigh)
I’ve bought this wooden sign long long time ago in Canada, on one of my yardsale tours. Oh Yardsales! Miss ya. And I could kick myself for not getting the pair, cause they came by two, but silly me thought: naa. why two? WHAT was I thinking. Two is always better. I was clearly out of my mind.
Ok, so I hadn’t done anything to the sign so far, it was an Autumn sign and pretty cute actually.
But I want to have it for longer now than just for the fall season. I want it all year around!
So come and see what a little bit of white paint and my super metallic markers could do!
I didn’t even have to sand it, i just painted over and not evenly at all. It came out really distressed and lovely with the black still peeking out here and there.
After the paint had dried, I decided to write the word “HOLA” on it, meaning “HALLO” in Spanish. On picmonkey I wrote the word down in my favourite font. Now, I just copied it by looking at the letters and writing them first with pencil and then with metallic marker. But if you prefer, you can use THIS method of getting the letters onto your piece.
I then drew a little frame around the leaf part and that’s about it! I put it on my stairway, leaning against the wall and I love it!
What do you think???
