Ok, I admit that last time I blogged I was supposed to give you a real repurpose and I didn’t really do that. Today I’m repurposing an old sign I had in my garage that I wan’t loving…one from the Dollar Tree at that and making it into something that I love now and will happily hang on my door!
First I removed all the elements before I began painting it. (You can see the before and the process in the video below). I made it very classic and kinda farmhouse-ish by gessoing it first then giving it a crisp coat of of “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess acrylic paint. Then using a ruler I lightly drew some pencil lines to make it look like wooden boards. I came back over the lines with “Grunge” Haute Mess acrylic paint and a fine brush, making sort of rough and imperfect lines. Next I used foam letter stamps and using the same “Grunge” paint I stamped the word “Thanks” on to the top burlap section of the sign. I then freehand painted the word “Thanks” in the Haute Mess “Bad and Tatted” acrylic paint. Finally I glued it all back together and distressed the edges with some black paint. I added a black letter “S” that I found at the craft store to personalize it for our family. It’s the perfect timeless addition to our home that I know we will use year after year now!
