Painting a Large Bible Verse Sign5:30:00 AM
Another day another request for something
someone's seen on Pinterest.
I continue to wonder why I do this to myself.
When I get these requests I kill myself trying to recreate a project someone's seen on Pinterest.
It's stressful but definitely gets my juices flowing!
I warn them in advance, I am not making it exactly the same as the original... for many reasons. First of all being I'm not a miracle worker LOL.
This is the beautiful photo my customer saw on Pinterest and with a little investigation I found out it came from The Grace House Interiors. (Please forgive me Jennifer!)
I started out by finding a piece of wood to use, the one I had on hand was 10" x 41".
I am including affiliate links to products I recommend that you can use to get a similar look. Click on the dark lettering to get the link.
I painted the board white then built a frame using 2" trim. I attached the trim using wood glue and my nail gun then clamped the frame until it was dry.
When it was dry I painted the trim grey.
I printed the lettering in a similar font on my computer and arranged the words on another board the same size to get it right.
I used graphite transfer paper between the printed words and the board then traced around each letter.... yes I did!
I painted in each letter using the same grey paint I used on the frame then distressed the lettering with sand paper.
My lettering is rustic and hand painted. I could have used a vinyl stencil to make the lettering perfect but I prefer the look of distressed and imperfect.
I figure anyone who asks me to hand paint them a sign does too.
Hope she loves it as much as I did making it.Please share on Facebook or Pinterest by clicking the boxes below or leave a nice comment at the bottom of this page.
