You laid awake all night last night wondering what I did with those chipboard letters, didn't you?
You didn't? Oh, okay.
I'm gonna tell you anyway.
So, I had this piece of scrap wood... (I've now written 3,349 posts that start with that phrase)
It's a piece of MDF actually, leftover from our master bedroom shelves. I spray painted it with silver paint, then sanded the edges and roughed up the shiny finish.
Next, I brushed on my new Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze, and wiped it right off. I'm just loving the look of tarnished silver/aged metal this creates. Remember the frame I tried this on first?
Just to warn you, you MIGHT see this finish again this holiday season.
I painted three chipboard letter with "colonial red" craft paint and glued them on the wood. Then I just used some small letter stamps and a black stamp pad to finish the thought.
A few small ornaments and some fake snow in my apothecary jar, and my powder room sports just a touch of Christmas color.
How much? Well...the whole alphabet was $2.99, so that's about 35 cents for the letters. I already had everything else. A touch of Christmas for UNDER a dollar. Now THAT brings JOY to MY world.
Link up those projects!! Please be sure to link back to REINVENTED in your posts so that we can share the love.
