I did a quick project today since going outside was not part of my plans today. The wind and cold are getting old so I decided to stay inside, catch up on some of the blogs I like to read, watch the Olympics, enjoy the aroma of the pot roast I have cooking in the Crock Pot, and do a little painting and stenciling.
I was at Lowe’s last week and found some pre-cut pieces of wood for less than $3.00 a piece so I brought a couple home with me.
I painted one of them black and then took out some stencils and some cream colored craft paint.
I used a yard stick and a pencil to mark the center of my sign and then the first letter I stenciled on was the letter “V” which was the center letter in the French work “Bienvenue”. Then I added the rest of the letters to finish spelling the word. I also use a piece of blue painter’s tape to help me keep the letters straight.
When it was done, I tacked a saw tooth picture hanger on the back and it is now hanging above one of the doors in my kitchen.
This really was a quick and easy project. Cheap too! Welcome to our home!
