I had a new idea. What about using a decal? They are so popular now and so easy to apply, the best part is they are super cheap. I got mine from Aliexpress @ www.aliexpress.com for about $2.50 US.
Secondly I used some black board sticker ordered off of Amazon.com, it comes in a roll like shelf paper. It was also inexpensive, I think about $7.00 including the exchange. I only used a small portion of it, so lots more for other projects.
I started off by scraping the stenciled lettering off of the glass (the one I didn't like), then cleaned it really well with glass cleaner. Out with the old, in with the new.
The decal comes with easy to follow application instructions, depending on the size of the decal, extra hands are helpful. Here's mine, once applied.
I chose the Bon Appetit sign for two reasons, it's going in the kitchen and I am French!
"framed" it with black electric tape, to give it a more finished look.
I then added one of my favorite recipes from Quebec,
got Mikey to hang it for me, and Voila! It's done!
I love that the old chippy & rusted hardware is still on it, just adds to its appeal for me.
So, all spent, about $12.00 for a unique, rustic wall hanging.
I love how it turned out and it suits our kitchen perfectly.
Go ahead, make one yourself, it's super easy & fun!
