Hey there! I worked on a little project over the weekend that I wanted to share. I've been crazy about this painting ever since I first saw it a few years ago.
Next, I printed out the letters from a word program on my computer. I don't remember the name of the font but I enlarged it to around 700 so it would fill the entire page. I cut them out and used the cut out letters as a stencil. I placed the letters where I wanted them and then, using a stencil brush, painted around the letters with Glidden pebble gray paint.
After that dried, I dry brushed different areas with plain white paint and added some white detail to the letters, as well. After that was dry, I applied a glossy sealer over the entire piece and voila!
I'm super happy with it and instead of being over $3000 like the inspiration painting, my version cost me less than 10 bucks to make. We hung it upstairs because frankly, that area is drab and probably one of the most neglected areas of our home when it comes to decorating. Usually, it's the place that furniture I'm tired of gets banished to.
I can't leave without saying thank you for all the sweet and encouraging comments and emails I received yesterday about yesterday's post. Thank you sweet friends! You put a big ol' smile on my face!
Have a great day!!
