Wooden Signs = Easy Art!

A couple of things to share this week...

First up, I wanted to give a little shout-out to Saltbox House.  I won a giveaway over at The Bird's Papaya for any sign from her shop.  It was a tough choice because they all are adorable!  For real, go check them out!  Anyway... I just loved the "Life is Fragile, Handle with Prayer" sign and knew that would be my choice.  But I was really hoping for something in blue and grey to go with my new color obsession.  Jackie was so sweet and made a blue and grey one just for me!  I just think that's so above and beyond, especially for a giveaway item.  Thanks so much Jackie!

Want to see it?  It so cute!  Since we are moving in the next month, I just put it in my kitchen window, but it's sure to find a great home in the new house!

Speaking of wooden signs, this past week I led the ladies in my church in a craft night.  I taught two wood craft.  One was my All Season Blocks I made a year or so ago.  The other was these adorable wooden quote signs.

The design of which I shamelessly stole from this Etsy Seller.  She has a ton of cute wood crafts and signs so check her out too!

Anyway, the boards are all 9x9 squares and I made a stencil out of vinyl to paint on the text.  I love how the distressing turned out on these guys.

I did my basic sand and then a coat of wood stain technique, but it really made my white letters dingy.  So then I took a wet rag and just scrubbed the letters.  I was able to go through to the base coat in some spots, just make it white in others, and leave the dingy stain in some spots too.  I just love the look!

It was a ton of fun watching everyone at our craft night put their spin on it and seeing all the color combinations.

Anyway, that's it for now.  I will be back in a few day with a progress report on the new house.  We closed yesterday and my husband has gone down to start demolition.  So excited!

As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:
