#2 completes my front step.....for now at least! I love the Welcome Post that I made last week, but I thought my front step didn't look complete. So I decided to make her a friend!
Introducing the skinny! I ♥ her!
For this project I cut a 2x2 24" long, I cut down a 1x6 into 2 3.5"x3.5" squares and 2 2.5"x2.5" squares. I centered the squares and screwed through the middle into the 2x2.
Did I mention I started this project at 10:30 after the girls went to bed and needed to spray paint? No problem I made my own indoor spray booth! My husband would probably kill me if he knew I spray painted in the garage, but what he doesn't know won't hurt anyone :)
After I sprayed it black
I am addicted to black and distressed it. I used a cheap mug hook I bought at WalMart and screwed it in near the top.
To make my sign I cut a 1x4 down to make a 3.5"x4.25" rectangle and sprayed it heirloom white. I gave it 5 minutes to dry and used my ink pad on the edges. I used my Cricut and vinyl to cut the fleur de lis. I drilled a hole near the top and used ribbon for the hanger. I added some cheap upholstery tacks to the corners for a little extra.
And now I believe that my step is complete!
