Back In The Saddle Again

Submitted to Community Café

I'm FINALLY getting my groove back in the craft room after having surgery in mid-March.  You would think they removed my creative juices for all the lack of crafting I've done.  Needless to say, the juices are flowing and I've started making signs again.  Wake*Pray*Slay is a good reminder for me to be thankful to have a great day ahead of me to slay all those things I love to do!

Super simple sign:

  • Sanded a small board
  • Painted board with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White
  • Gave the white paint a very light sanding
  • Added a stencil made on my Cricut
  • Painted the words with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Charcoal
  • Painted the hearts with gold craft paint
  • Carefully removed stencil when paint was dry
  • Sealed sign with Rust-Oleum Chalked Protective Topcoat in Matte Clear
  • Cut a frame using 1x2's
  • Stained the wood pieces for the frame
  • Attached the wood pieces to the sign with brad nailer
  • Attached a sawtooth hanger to the back for hanging
  • VOILA!!!
