I then filled them in by hand
then sanded over the letters to distress the writing as well.
This is the finished sign.
I had some old shutters in the workshop, just waiting for an project so they could have a new life! :) Karen and her hubby Don recently painted and re-decorated their master bedroom, and wanted some kind of cabinet to hide the television they mounted to the wall...So, I came up with this...
Old shutters, which I lightly sanded before pulling out my trusty compressor to spray paint them a robin's egg blue..
Shutters have so many nooks and crannies, spraying them is a must!
I then put together a basic "box", painted it, added a shelf inside and hubby added some crown molding on the top part (I suck at mitered corners)...then came the hinges,
did a little sanding...
I added some pretty glass knobs, hung an antique key,
This is the (almost) finished cabinet sitting in our living room, with the sign on it. It needs to be distressed a bit in some spots, then it will be done!
Happy Birthday Karen, I hope you like your gifts!
Live, Love, Laugh.
