It's always fun for me to make a house a true home, by decorating it to reflect our personalities. Having just moved into a new home, my creative wheels are spinning. We still have a lot of boxes and furniture in storage, so it will be like "Christmas" for me when we do get a chance to unload those items (we have to finish the basement first)!
In the meantime though, there are a few projects I've been working on along the way. This first one was super simple, but adds a really nice touch to the built in coat rack we have in our house.
Being in an area with new construction, there are many dumpsters throughout our neighborhood and the craftsmen are always discarding things. I rummaged through their discard pile the other day and found this roughed up piece of wood and brought it home. It was just what I needed for my sign!
I sanded it just a smidge so that that vinyl would adhere nicely, but left the weathered and splintered edges as is. I made the sign using my Silhouette machine and this project was finished in just about an hour.
To finish it, I painted two light coats of ModPodge on top of the letters when I was finished to give it some additional protection.....and there you have it! It's just what this little corner of "our world" needed.
