Ever have those days where the amount of projects you've got going outnumber the flat surfaces you've got to put them on?
Yeah, that's me!
In the past two weeks I've:
- made my first set of boy name blocks
- painted and stenciled a picture frame and mat
- put the first coat of paint on cabinets for my craft room (a.k.a. laundry room)
- had my kitchen table covered 90% of the time with one of the curtains from my hearth room (can't wait to show you this project... I'm painting them!)
- and... made the ice cream sign I'm showing you today
If I could manage to stick to a single project at a time, it might not take me weeks and weeks to finish just one!!
Oh, I also read two books... if you liked Hunger Games, check out Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth.
You won't be disappointed!
Ok, onto the sign...
This one started as a dark old cabinet door I bought for around $3 at my local ReStore.
I slapped some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White on it and then did a quick color wash with watered down ASCP in Coco.
|Used the Silhouette Cameo to cut a Contact Paper stencil.|
I knew I wanted to make it into a sign, and eventually decided on a vintage Soda Shop look. It was either that or something about drinking Margarita's... supposedly this is more "family friendly". WHATEVER!
I suppose I like Ice Cream just as much as I like Margarita's... uh, NOT!!
I painted the letters with more Coco ASCP, then went over that with a lightly watered down Duck Egg Blue ASCP.
I ended by sanding and sealing with some clear wax.
Makes me want a Sundae.
And a MARGARITA!!!
Now that I've practiced on the sign, I'm off to finish tackling those craft room cabinets.
(Any guesses what kind of finish they're gonna have?)
Mr Concrete is just itching to install them so the kitchen island isn't permanently covered by drop cloths, paint and Mod Podge.
You'd think he'd be used to that by now...
