Our back patio, at the lake cottage, certainly needed a little
I’ve seen several pieces of subway art on the web that looked so
neat and interesting. I was thinking…. this might be
the perfect solution.
I found this piece of plywood and trim left over from another project in our basement,
and realized this would make the perfect sign.
I also had some black and white spray paint left over.
I first sprayed it with white spray paint and then went over the white with black.
I thought this project was going to be easy, but I soon found out it was somewhat time consuming
and required a few math skills, Ugh!
The stencil, I was going to use, was waaa too big for the frame
and since I didn’t want any money tied up in this master piece,
I just winged most of it, crooked letters and all.
After painting the letters, I let it dry overnight. The next day, I used
an electric hand sander and sanded down the letters and frame,
just to get a weathered look.
It’s now a cozy little place to sit and relax with a glass of cold iced tea
and watch the hummingbirds and butterflies.
You want to know the best part? It was FREE!
