I can't get enough of the handpainted-sign craze.
The fun thing about these is that you can make them say whatever you want. For this one, I chose "Cottage." Who doesn't want to live in a quaint little cottage, right?
I actually found this board at my house. No idea where it came from. I guess that's the kind of life I live.....
I sanded it down nice and smooth and painted it "warm white." I printed out my letters in a font I liked, cut them out, and traced them on the board with a pencil, like so....
I also cut out some pretty scrapbook and Mod Podged each end of the board.
I used a tiny paint brush to slowly fill in the letters:
I used my finger to smear a little black paint on the edges to give it more character.
Welcome to the cottage!
P.S. I'm linking up to the parties on my Blog Parties tab as well as these awesome sites:
