I’ve had a few different requests for some more details on the DIY wood home sign I made a couple of weeks ago…so ask, and you shall receive!
My neighbor, and friend, Kate decided to host a party with Shea Crafts after she had attended one herself. I am SO glad she did, because it was seriously so fun!
As a guest, we had to choose the sign that we wanted to paint about two weeks prior to the party, so she could make sure she had all of the necessary materials for everyone.
There were so many awesome designs (you can see many of them in her gallery!), but there was something about the round sign that totally stood out to me.
Kelly (the owner of Shea Crafts) had about six different stain options to choose from, and a number of different paint colors as well. Since I’m all grey obsessed and whatnot, I ended up choosing the grey stain, which is actually quite similar to our kitchen cabinets.
For the actual design on the sign, everything was done with a pre-made stencil/template. If you’ve ever done anything like add a decal to a wall or anything like that, then this was likely very similar. Place, press, scrape, gently peel, repeat. ; )
Apparently the sign I chose was one of the more difficult, so I’m pretty sure I was the last one finished out of the group, but it all worked out!
I had a hard time deciding which color to paint our name, but I did end up deciding on a very light blue-green and I love it. The only part I question was whether or not I should have done the ‘H’ white, just like the arrows around the circle?
But hey, ya know what? I still love it. And now I seriously want to paint all. the. signs. (Too bad she’s pretty much booked basically through the end of November!). Have you guys ever been to a party like this? SO much fun!!
This post was not at all sponsored, and it’s highly likely that the owner will never even know I wrote it. But if you’re local, I’d totally recommend checking her out because she was great!
