Home is Where…..

I’ve been working on a new project today……

The plaque is from Hobby Lobby (Yay! for them shipping APO) and I first painted it black, and then hand painted the white lettering. Next I sanded it back a little, and then sealed the whole thing with a clear poly. This is only part 1 of the project, as I am now hand lettering 7 more smaller pieces of wood with all the places we have lived with the Air Force. (I am hanging this outside my door, opposite a wreath that I just made, and will have a tutorial for.)

I certainly didn’t invent this type of sign, but I really like how this one is turning out, usually these are red white and blue, or military service colors, but I like the black and white, and the more simple feel.

    When I first read that it was hand painted lettering I had to stare at the picture again. I would have guessed stencil. Looks awesome.

      Thank you! I used to paint a lot more signs, but haven’t really been doing as many over the last few years so I feel quite rusty!
