I love thoughts and quotes…I am such a sucker for them.

I love them in vinyl, on my computer, on signs, on wood, okay, anywhere…

I have painted signs before but this one I decided to spray paint

because I didn’t want any visible paint strokes this time which is weird for me,

I LOVE paint strokes, knots, wood-grain, and character. 

This turned out to be my favorite gift I gave away for “Wedding weekend”

It was also the easiest.

I cut out the letters in different sizes ranging from 1 1/2″ to 4″  from vinyl using my Cricut.

{If you don’t have a Cricut, I believe WalMart sells vinyl letters, or you can cut them out of contact paper.

You can also custom order some from me if you contact me through my email}.

Situate the letters on the sign according to your liking,

make sure they are rubbed down completely and sealed well.

Take it outside and spray paint it.

{I used a matte black paint}.

Be careful not to get any drips.

When it is completely dry, gently peel off the letters.

That’s it!

If you would like to seal it you can use a matte spray varnish.

This project is part of  Three Weddings & a Laundry Room

So, now that you know how easy it is, do you think you will make one?

    I do want to make one! I did this once but I only had the contact paper because I don’t have a cricket. I will have to show you a pic. It still turned out cute although admittedly not as adorable as yours! Love it – also love the saying!

    Instead of using contact paper I will recommend using transfer paper it works perfectly..
