New Vintage Style Sign

Well Hello Everyone!

I'm finally back from my blogging break.

Very excited to be back to catch up on all the projects you've been working on while I've been away.

While I was gone, one completed project of my own was a little something new for the Living Room.

Wanting a new look for the space above the sofa,  I first hung two framed botanical prints with burlap mats.

It looked nice but didn't fill up the blank wall as much as I would have liked.

So then, I decided to paint a new over-sized sign to hang above the two frames.

The new sign helps fill up the space and give me an opportunity to add a more color to the room.

I am now loving the finished look.

(not however loving the way the burlap mats are looking like two different colors - what is going on!  I swear in real life they are the same color - - - 
--just ignore them if you can--LOL)

The sign was painted on a scrap piece of 1X8 and it's almost three feet long.
I used craft paint to paint on the letters.  I then distressed the whole thing and added a dark wax stain over the top to make it look older.

It turned out pretty good I think.

I think it gives a room a little something special.

Hope you all have a fabulous day,

Bye now,

  14. Love your cute sign! You did a great job on that. I love the color and the way the letters on each side are big and the letters in the middle aren't. That's a nice looking arrangement above the sofa. I also love that chippy painted table in front of your sofa.
