I decided that if I'm gonna do another craft show (& hopefully more than that in the future), then I'm going to need some sort of sign that represents my business. It was also kind of inspired by the 8" swirly fun wooden letters that I found at Hobby Lobby.
I found this old frame at a garage sale for 3 bucks. It was just that - a simple frame, no glass, no backing - nothing inside. Just an ugly old brown frame. But not for long! I spray painted is with a Rustoleum Aubergine Painter's Touch spray paint, then sealed it with a Minwax Polyurethane Gloss finish. I cut a piece of Plywood to fit the frame, sanded it, then painted it with 2 coats of chalkboard paint. I attached it into the frame with wood glue.
This was the smallest of three in a nesting table set that used to be my grandma’s. I simply sanded it lightly, then taped off a tree design with Edge-lock painter’s tape and used a small craft knife to carve out smaller details. I then spray painted the entire thing with a Rust-Oleum navy blue spray paint, let it dry, then peeled off the tape. I put a couple coats of Minwax® Polyurethane Gloss Finish over the top and that was it. Cute little pop of color to add to any room!
