Just a piece of wood.

 

Years ago I had a small craft and antique shop on our property. It was in the early 90’s when handmade crafts were very popular. In 1996 I closed the shop. I had some wood that my husband had cut for me to make signs out of and I didn’t use all of it. Every once in a while he would remind me of the wood he cut and I never used. So this week,18 years later, :~) , I decided the time had come to use the wood. So, I saw something I liked on Pintrest and it needed a rectangular piece to put it on, a match made in heaven!

I painted the wood the color that I wanted it to be using Rustoleum 2X Painters Touch spray paint. It covers quickly and evenly. I let it dry for at least 24 hours. I then use a fine sanding block and sand the paint and wipe it off with a micro fiber cloth to remove any dust. I find that this step helps the vinyl really adhere. I love to use the clear transfer tape to transfer the vinyl because you can see exactly where you are placing it.

  1. Totally awesome, Nancy!! Love them, thanks for showing and sharing the file too!!!

    PS Another great reason why we never throw anything away! Some day its purpose will reveal itself, LOL!

  2. I hate parting with things, but I am getting to the point where I need to part with somethings or build onto the house. :O) Getting rid of things makes more sense.
