What Happens on the Patio...

Is it true that what happens on the patio....


stays on the patio?


A friend posted a great sign she found on Pinterest onto Facebook... with the caption... "she bet Susan could make one"...

OOH I JUST LOVE A CHALLENGE!

I've been wanting to try making a sign with 
stick-on scrapbook letters anyway... so here was my chance!


I began by painting a board white, then I stuck scrapbook stickers on to make the saying (being sure to use a straight edge).


I gave the sign a couple coats of Annie Sloan
 Chalk Paint... the color is Florence.

I let the paint dry overnight then carefully removed the letters.

There was very minimal leakage but in hindsight if I had painted a coat of the original white over the letters first,
the lettering would be even more perfect.


Ta-da! It worked just like I hoped it would!

I gave it a little sanding then a coat of clear wax.


I wanted it to be a little more rustic so I gave it another
 coat of wax, this time dark wax.



I loved it and I hoped my friend Kate would too.

Kate just finished a beautiful fireplace on her patio...


and Yay she likes it and the sign is perfect out there!

When's the party Kate?
