I've seen it on Pinterest in various forms.
I LOVE all of these for various reasons.
The other day, while I was in the garage helping the kids get the pig feed measured out, I walked past a forgotten board that has been leaning up against the garage wall like FOREVER.
It had 4 nails sticking out of it that I tried and tried in the past to pull out, but I think they are in there permanently, so I left them in.
For some reason, the other day, that board told me I needed to rescue it and make it into the Sunshine sign I've been thinking of making.
I took it inside, brushed off the cobwebs (much to Grace's total disgust...how could I even touch them with my bare hands??????) and just hammered those four nails flat.
Then I took it outside and spray painted it totally white.
Then I got out my vinyl for the cricut, and printed out the words to use for the sign.
Then I took it back outside and spray painted it yellow, right over the vinyl words and everything.
I let it dry, then brought it back inside...
and stripped off the words. They came right off and left behind WHITE words.
Pretty slick, huh?
I got out my sandpaper and distressed it a little.
I didn't want it looking too perfect and new. Then I took a thin black marker, highlighted the words, and distressed it some more.
Then I hung it up above the doorway from the foyer to the dining room so everyone sees it when they come in the front door.
Bad thing about that is...everytime Brent walks in the door he sings "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..." Funny the first time, but not so much anymore.
Now Evan's doing it.
Maybe I would've done it a little differently if I would've had a taller board, but this looks ok for now. I can always spray paint over it....
