Remember the tin letters I showed you a couple of weeks ago a friend gave me for Christmas?
Well, today's the day I show you what I did with them. Welcome to another edition of Creative Friday!
Little did my friend know I was thinking of making a gallery wall and putting a family name sign on it. Her gift couldn't have been more timely!
I instantly knew they were going to be the jumping off point for my name sign. First, I needed a board long enough for the letters so off to my stash of old fence pickets I went.
This board was the perfect length but very dirty so I gave it a good scrubbing down. After it dried, I sanded it down to smooth out the extremely rough texture (I need the letters to stay glued on).
Then I pulled out some white chalky paint and gave it a good coat. (Let dry)
Last, I glued down the tin letters using E6000 glue. Hangers on the back and voila! A family name sign - a little bit rustic and a little bit shabby. Perfection in my book!
I have a couple more easy projects to share then I'll be putting it all together. It's going to look great!
