You can find these cute wood stumps in the forest but seeing that I live in the city, I went the easy route and bought mine at Michaels! I got this super chic mint paint from my friend Carissa Miss at SNAP! The brand is Country Chic Paint and honestly, went on so smooth and dried like a charm. Also, if my camera battery didn’t die and if I didn’t have little hands who loved to touch everything you’d be seeing more pictures of the actual process. Remember, this is real life. LOL.
So first off, I made a sign just in Word and picked a font I love. I used Meddon, it’s a free script font and it goes along with the super trendy calligraphy these days. I made it as large as I wanted and printed it off. I placed it on my stump and traced over it with pencil.
It wasn’t dark but I traced it hard enough to make a significant groove in the wood so I could see the indentation while I was painting. I then took a fine paintbrush and began tracing. So. Easy. I like easy in this house. It literally took 5 minutes to dry and I was ready to hang. I bought some command strips at Michaels cause I didn’t want to damage the subway tile we installed a few months ago (I’m a little bit behind starting this blog game), perfect choice. Yes, they are refill packs, but I didn’t need hooks so they were the perfect thing I needed. I adhered it to the wood pieces and placed the velcro like strips together and removed the adhesive protectant and slapped it on the wall. Literally.
I love the placement, I needed something there and it gives it a little bit of an eclectic feel. It would also look awesome outside or you can do an initial and put it on a gallery wall. I bought a few of these wood discs so I know I’m going to incorporate them a bit all over the house, just got to figure it out! Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you check out all the others participating in Craft Lightning!
