In a world...

Hello my dears,

Look I made a sign!

Found a drawer front at the reStore place. Filled in the holes with some wood fill.
Waited and waited to do anything with it.
Then I remembered that I bought some vinyl stickers at the Dollar Tree awhile ago.

Painted the piece of wood white
Didn't like it as it was tooooo white.
Then I added some Sherwin Williams "Tradewind" in a process of dry brushing that over it. 
Then add some espresso acrylic paint mixed with some staining medium.
Finally had the right color.
Add some Dollar Tree vinyl and there is your sign!
Quick, easy and ADORABLE.

I had made it for my daughters bathroom, however Handsome Man put it over the front door. So there is a constant reminder to BE YOURSELF as you walk out the door.




  1. I love it! Very well done. And, what a great thing to be reminded of just before venturing out into the world.
