Learn how I made this Mr. and Mrs. sign…
So…as some of you may know…if you follow The Idea Room FB page, that I have been painting and sprucing up our Master Bedroom which has been the same since we first moved into our home almost 9 years ago. And for me, who grew up rearranging her bedroom every few months, that is a LONG time with no change. With the new paint color, we had to get a couple of new décor items. I thought it would be fun to make a sign that was unique to our wedding date.
I was inspired by a wedding photo I saw where the bride and groom were each holding their respective signs. I knew I wanted to use some weathered wood and had the perfect wood to use. We “inherited” this old beat up garden swing when we moved into our home from the previous owners. It was broken but I always had plans to fix it up and use it. But it never happened. We had slated it for the garbage man and the morning it was to be hauled off I knew I had to rescue it. So before my husband left for work he rescued it out of the garbage can. Phew…disaster averted.
We cut the wood off the swing using a reciprocating saw. Then I took 3 of the wood planks and glued them together with some left over wood scraps on the back.
Then using my new Silhouette Cameo machine, I cut some vinyl for the Mr. and Mrs. using the ChopinScript font.
Carefully add the vinyl lettering to your sign.
Then, I added a thin coat of Mod Podge (Matte finish) to the sign. I did this because the paint was peeling off. I did not want to lose any more of the paint or have it shed in my room. I also wanted to keep it just the way it was.
I really like the personal touch it gives our Master Bedroom. And I have a few more pieces of the weathered wood that I hope to find some fun projects for.
