365 New Days Canvas Sign
I am really into the WORDS sign fad right now,
Do you like them?
I remember when I first saw these words
365 New days,
365 New chances.
……what a great inspirational message
if you are like me
I love any encouragement I can get
it can be a nice leg rug from my cat
or a friendly wave from my neighbor
anything that is positive I take as encouragement
I’m not picky……..
ok, so let me tell you about how the sign came to be
When I was in Week 5 of the ORC stressing out and trying to finish up my guest bedroom,
I looked up & there was this, OMG, humongous, blank space above the bed…
what was I going to do?
See all the details of the Guest Bedroom Makeover>>>>>>>>HERE
I asked myself……..self, wouldn’t an over-sized word sign look great there?
that inner voice said…….Yes, it would.
So I was off to gather the needed supplies
365 New Days Sign – Here is What you need
I created the lettering on my cricut (design space files) . The cricut makes it so easy to get a professional look when creating art.
Sorry to say it does not help me with my painting skills
I measured and spaced my numbers and wording until they were right, or least I liked how they looked.
Next, I stenciled with black acrylic paint.
Once all was stenciled, I lightly sanded the lettering to give it a distressed look.
See the number 3 where I have lightly sanded the edge to see how it would look.
Also any mistakes I made
and yes I do mess up a lot,
I used a white paint & fixed the spots right up
so there you have it……
fast, easy sign project…..
Another sign I made that was fun is here: DIY Wall Art- Places Traveled
Chalkboard window here: Chalkboard Welcome Sign
I am so addicted to word signs right now…..they can serve as valuable reminders to each of us…..so if you decide to make your own sign remember,
We all need encouragement now and then…
and inspiration in our lives…..
so perhaps when glancing up at this sign, hopefully
it will give you are someone in your home
a moment to say
YES it is a new day, anything is possible…..
