More Signs Completed

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I finished another sign and a pair of hooks last night.



The Jardin sign I painted two coats of Decadent white paint, roughed up the edges with 120 grit sandpaper, then I applied the stencil and painted them black.  Once all was dry I distressed with my antiquing glaze and attached two hangers on the back.

The two hooks I painted La Fonda Turquoise and followed my same process for distressing.  Then we added the black hooks and the hangers on the back.  These would be great to hang a robe on or a coat, purse, hat...you name it!!

Hand Painted Beach Sign

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Just completed a hand painted and distressed Beach sign.




I started by painting two coats of Valspar's blue Bay Mist, then I stenciled BEACH with Valspar's Decadent.  Once that was dry I roughed it up with 120 grit sandpaper and applied Valspar's Antiquing Glaze to give it that aged look.  Lastly I added two picture hangers for easy mounting!

Can't wait to make more!
