Here's a sign I recently created.
Remember when these plastic home decor company letters were popular? Well, not so much anymore because I found them at a garage sale for a buck. I figured I could recycle them into something new so I took them outside and spray painted the letters completely black.
I painted white chalky paint on the front only of the letters. I didn't mind if the paint edges were uneven and messy. For interest I used a background stamp with black chalk paint and added the cool screen design. I softened the edges with more of the black paint. I used a pine board as the sign base, painting it with red chalk paint and distressing.
I glued the letters to the board and added eye hooks for hanging.
This is now a large piece of sign art that will add a pop of color to any style of decor!
