Being a craft kinda gal, oftentimes I stumble upon things and automatically think "I could make that myself!"
This $190 sign. Don't get me wrong, it's way cute but not $190 cute. That's a cute pair of jeans. And in my opinion a cute pair of jeans is worth $190, wall art is not.
So one day a few weeks ago my dad I trekked back to the fence at the back of their property, where his secret stash of old beat-up barnwood was hidden, and found some suitable pieces.
And then my awesome mamma, because I have project ADD, cut down the boards for me on their table saw and showed up at my house earlier this week in search of her daughter and woodglue.
We glued the pieces of barnwood to a scrap of beadboard that was lying around, and professionally set it up to dry. AKA Asked HJ to drag over the pile of shingles and stack it on top of the freshly glued boards to add weight.
The next day I got home from work and whipped out my stencils (purchased at Lowe's by the way) and went to town.
Ladies and gents (are there any gents) I unveil to you my newest piece of artwork, that I am utterly, completely in love with!
UPDATE:: I got this piece hung up in my bedroom! Check it out here!
