Like so many of you talented bloggers out there, nothing makes me happier than to breath new life into the old, the ugly, or the once loved treasures that I unearth at thrift shops or garage sales! Today I'd like to show you one of my latest repurposing projects, a fun cafe sign with a vintage vibe!
I'm a bad blogger once again, as in my excitement to paint this puppy, I neglected to take a "before" shot! At any rate, this started out as a plain, ordinary dark wooden platter. Nothing exciting. Rather ho-hum, actually! I began by painting it one of my favorite creamy shades, followed by a generous dose of distressing, and my trusty ol' antiquing glaze.
I am totally in love with this cafe design from the Graphics Fairy! I thought it would be a perfect match for my new sign!
So, I decoupaged it on, and added a sawtooth hanger to the back, so the sign can be hung. I thought it would look neat perched on an easel, too!
I've added it to my Etsy shop, if you care to take a look!
Gotta run, it's back to painting and decoupaging for me!
