Welcome Sign

10:51:00 PM

My Valspar sample came today...

I got a free paint sample of my choice, 
a roller and a plastic tray!
So I wasted no time trying it out...

I'm making a French welcome sign.
First I painted the board...

I printed out the word bienvenue in a font I loved...
and traced it onto the wood.

Then I hand painted the word and
gave it a good sanding and distressing...

Then I gave it a coat of Poly for protection...

And now it's ready to
hang just about anywhere!

And my personal favorite!

  24. Congrats on the free paint! I tried to get one the other day but they had closed the deal for the day. The sign looks so pretty!

  25. Hi! I am a new follower, and very excited that I found your blog. I, too, am curious how you transferred the word to the wood - did you use carbon paper? Thanks!


  26. @Tina... I didn't use carbon paper I just scribbled with pencil on the back of the paper. It works the same way. Glad to have you follow. I'm afraid I can not reply to you because you are on no-reply!

  27. oh my! love it! I love this welcome sign. I made a window with a fleur de lis a couple of years ago, and the window blew over and broke while I was letting the paint dry.
    great job!
