Another Perfect Day

June 11, 2015

Summer is definately on the way in with another perfect day is underway. I may not be at the beach, but I think poolside counts don't you? : )

 

All this sunshine has put me in the mood to share one of my beach signs with you. This sign took a few extra steps to get the look I was after. I wanted the back ground to resemble sand and water. After sanding down the pallets boards until fairly smooth I attached them to some smaller lattice strips with small screws to secure them in place.

 

 

I gave the wood a wash of Annie Sloan Coco mixed with AS Old White and then a light coat of AS Louis Blue. Once dry I sanded lightly on top and a little more heavily towards the bottom so the Coco would be more prominant to give the illusion of sand, water and sky.

 

 

I painted the sea shell in AS White. Then I created a stencil with my silhouette machine and stenciled on the printing in AS Graphite.

 

 

Once that was done, a little more light sanding to give it that beachy look, add some finishing was, a little polishing and it's ready to make it's day in the sun!

 

Easy peasy! I'm lovin' the washed look. I might just make a few more of these babies!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

I would love to hear from you!

I'm a designer wanna be with zero formal training and a whole lot of desire to create beautiful spaces. I love to turn old into new, to renovate, repurpose, repaint and am not afraid to re-evaluate when I step back to review and wonder "what the heck? I'm going to have to rethink this one!" Come join me in my DIY adventures. I may even share a journey or two! Thanks so much for stopping by. Y'all come back now, y'hear!
