I was reading one of my favorite DIY blogs The house of Smiths and in one of her tutorials she introduced the beautiful work of Dee Kasberger at The Red Letter Words. I loved her work and it inspired me to try to make one.
I knew I wanted to sand and distress the sign and I wanted some cream color showing through on the edges, so I painted the edges with a brown color. Once that was dry I added some Vaseline to the edges with a cotton ball for the larger areas I wanted distressed (like the corners) and I used the Q-tip for some random small sections in the middle. I got this great Vaseline tip from the awesome girls at Shanty 2 Chic.
I then took some sand paper and sanded it down till I got the look I wanted. Here is another look at the results:
I really love how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by.
