I made this sign out of an old weathered and beat up piece of plywood I found in my garage...
First I sanded it all over to try to get off any ickiness and smooth it out...
Found some black speckles that looked like possible mold so I sanded it all off and then covered the whole thing in Kilz primer.
Followed by a couple coats of Aqua colored spray paint.
(I swear by Rustoleum's Painter's Touch Ultra Cover... it works better than ANYTHING else! It's the same color I used to refinish my kitchen table which will be revealed sooner rather than later I hope!)
Anyway, after the spray paint I used a paint brush and pale yellow acrylic paint and painted the word BELOVED because it's the meaning of my name. I also sorta didn't measure it so I filled the empty space next to the B by using a foam heart shaped stamp from Hobby Lobby and some pink paint. When I was all done I sanded over it lightly with a sanding block and then rubbed on some Valspar antiquing glaze in Asphaltum.
This pic is a glimpse at my typical photo taking fiascos...
See dog in motion?
This is my next shot... figure B... dog in my lap
This will eventually hang over my headboard... I just forgot to buy nails today! OOPS!
