This is my bathroom door...
I made this sign several years ago.
Today I'm making a "laundry" sign and a sign for my
craft room/office ~ "create"
First I painted a board black, let it dry and printed out the word "laundry" on the computer using a font and a size that worked with the size of the board.
Next, using carbon paper, I traced around each letter
Using a medium grade sand paper when the paint was dry, I sanded down the letters until they looked old and worn.
Then using raw umber acrylic paint and a damp rag, I rubbed the color over the lettering. This gave the sign an aged look.
My favorite word!
