Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great week-end. Mine started on Thursday when my sweet husband took the day off and we drove to the Clark Museum in Williamstown (MA) to see a new Van Gogh exhibit. I will write about that soon. Then on Friday, my sweet daughter and I filled up the van after hitting several garage and estate sales. I’ll share my purchases with you tomorrow. Saturday I took my bi-monthly trip the Gristmill Antique Center to stock my booth, and then ran home to prepare for a family BBQ. Today we spent the morning at church, followed by another family BBQ. Somewhere in all of that I managed to finish today’s project: a market sign.
Some of you may remember my recent trip to Lancaster County (PA) with my sweet husband. I bought a number of pieces there, and this antique cupboard door was one of them. (Check out my photos of the beautiful, Lancaster countryside.)
I used the same stencils that I had for my side table makeover last week–$2.99 from JoAnn’s Fabric.
When spelling a word or words with individual letter stencils, I lay them side by side on the project surface to get an idea of how much space I’ll be needing. Then I usually stencil the first and last letters and move inward. I find this helps me to achieve even spacing for the entire word.
If you like what you read today, I hope you follow me by email.
