Kitchen Sign... All Finished!



What up??

Hope you guys are having a great weekend!!  This is birthday weekend for one of my little ladies so things are a bit crazy around here.  Not too crazy to sneak in this post though:-)

I showed you guys the beginning of my kitchen sign in my last post.  Here is how I finished it up...

After distressing all my letters my sign looked a bit like this.


I then took an 80 grit sanding block to all my edges like this.


Once I finished that, I added a line of dark walnut stain around the raw edges and wiped off my excess with an old cloth.  It's a perfect touch to make it look just a bit older.

My final step was adding a sawtooth hanger to the back of the board and putting it on the wall.

What do you think??









Hope you like it!  It was a great piece to break up that big blank space I think.  We will start this month's Shanty Silhouette sale on the 21st.  I will be back before then to show you a great new product.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Have a great weekend!!

This is SUCH a great idea to fill an 'empty' space -- eye-catching enough but it doesn't 'scream' at you -- love the colors!
