I'm baaaaaack :)
OK, so I'm not so stellar at
writing incredibly frequent posts
on this little bloggy blog here,
but it's the thought that counts, right?
So I wanted to show you a little
sumthin' I made a few weeks back.
I made it for a gallery wall that
I'm working on in our master bedroom.
Unfortunately, this little gallery wall
project has been in the works for a few weeks now.
27 4 other projects I'm working on.}
I want this gallery wall to be fun and meaningful.
It is the first wall you see as you
walk into our bedroom.
So.... I saw this quote awhile back on my
sister's blog, and I loved it!
I knew it needed to hang on my wall.
There you have it.
Notice the many imperfections...
the crooked letters,
the not completely white letters...
I made them that way on purpose,
to symbolize the fact that Wes and I
are two imperfect human beings
but we love each other
Haha, got ya!
Those imperfections were
And you thought I was really super deep.
So, I didn't take step by step photos.
Again, not up for the top blogger award here.
But all I did was sand a square piece of plywood
(luckily for me I have a ton of square pieces
of plywood lying around that I snagged
at a garage sale 2 years ago).
Then I spray painted the board in an off-white color.
Next I used my Silhouette to cut out the letters
for the quote (I used cardstock).
I laid the letters on the board,
and spray painted black over them.
This is where my laziness caused
those imperfections I mentioned earlier.
I didn't adhere the letters to the board at all,
so a few of them thought they could escape
during the spray painting process.
Finally, I sanded the edges lightly to make
the board look slightly worn.
There you have it.
Not too hard, huh?
Overall, I am happy with how the board
turned out and I think it will
be a fun addition to our bedroom!
I can't leave you without
a picture pictures of
my kitten britches
(my new fav nickname for Claire).

|I couldn't get enough pictures of kitten britches (or Meadow- Claire's hippy name for the day she wore this) in this adorable dress- thanks for Aunt Christy for it!|
