I finally finished my signage for the kitchen! It has been a work in progress for a while. I have seen other bloggers tell people what they need to do at the table and now I did it too.
I bought cardboard letters at JoAnns and found some nifty scrap book paper that matches the curtains I made (perhaps will show them in another post).
I don't think directions are needed but just in case, I painted the outer part of letters black and traced the letters on paper.
I modpodged the paper to the letters and after letting them dry for about 2 weeks.
I used an exacto knife to clean up the edges and sanded them.
They are not perfect. I tore some of the paper on the 'A'. But I like how rustic they turned out.
I found the utensils on Craigslist more then a month ago and had plans to paint and distress them a bit. After sitting in my bedroom for too long one of them broke. I opted to glue them and leave as is just so I could finish it. They are kind of distressed already anyway.
I am glad to have this finished. There are so many other things I want to make and now I can move on to them.
Here is the finished product:
I need to find something to put in the little area below the letters.
What do you think?
