Ever since I saw the large “groceries” sign hanging in the kitchen of Sarah Richardson’s cottage, I’ve wanted one for our kitchen.
Sarah Richardson is my absolute, hands-down, most favorite designer in the whole entire world. Her fresh, classic designs are always perfection. And her side-kick Tommy Smythe is the bomb diggity. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard of her, check out her website and prepared to be ahhmazed.
Alrighty, Sarah fan club meeting is officially adjourned. 🙂
Now about my sign. I wanted it to go on top of our new china hutch, so I bought a piece of lumber that looked to be the right height. My eyeball-it method of measuring has always served me well so I did it once again. But it came back to bite me in the butt. But I’m getting ahead of myself…
Here’s a sign-making tutorial in 5 easy steps.
I free-handed my lettering because my printer was spazzing out. Normally, I would print, cut and trace.
This is the time-consuming part. Invest in a decent angled brush for lettering so you aren’t wasting time picking bristles off of your freshly painted letters. Use regular ol’ Acrylic paint.
Once the letters are nice and dry…
This is where I went to prop my sign on top of the china hutch and realized that it was too tall.
Dang that eye-balling method!
So I did the next-best thing, which was to put it on the top shelf.
I like it.
For now. 😉
Be sure to check back tomorrow for Wednesday’s Wares.
It’s gonna be good.
