I had way to much fun in Michaels craft store today. I should have taken a picture of my kids who were being perfect angels while I let my creativity run wild! When I’m in a craft store it’s like my mind is running a marathon, but I’m full of energy; and giddy. Plus like everything I was interested in was 60% off and I had coupons. Today was a good day 🙂
And for today’s project that took more than 10 seconds.
I found some awesome metal letters for Paisley and Teagan.
I’m thinking ahead for the twins birthday party in July. It will be a sunshine and lemonade party-I will be blogging about lots of diy for this in the coming weeks. I like the idea of using “reusable” party decor. Lots of the signs and crafts I will be making will go in their room for decor once the party is over.
Rather than hang the letters right on the wall I wanted to put them on a board; that way I could use it for a sign at the party and I wanted a dark backround rather than the light painted wall.
I started out with a square of white pine board. It was something I had in the garage from another project. But you can find wood at any hardware store.
I used an espresso stain and polyurethane, again I had that from a previous project. 🙂 I used the hammer to pry open the can and the foam paint brush to paint the board. I prefer foam brushes when working with polyurethane because they are so cheap and you just throw them out after your finished.
