Today, we were supposed to paint the front porch. Mother Nature had other ideas. Hubby got about half way done, and it started to rain. And not just sprinkle, I mean really rain. So of course, that project was out.
I was up in our spare room talking to Hubby, when I spied this wooden H that Hubby has sitting on the bookshelf. Knowing he would never really do much with it, I decided to take it upon myself to be creative.
The H looked like it had been stained and/or varnished, as the front had a shiny finish to it.
The next thing I did was use a small amount of turquoise colored craft paint, and a sponge brush, and painted all over the H, making sure to get all the edges. I did not use enough paint to completely cover it, just enough to let the paint get into the roughened wood.
After the paint was dry, I used some scrapbook paper, and cut out part of the design on the paper. I glued the pieces to the H using a thin layer of Mod Podge. After letting it dry for a few moments, I then put a generous layer of Mod Podge over the entire H, to seal it and give it a glossy finish.
Now I have a lovely monogram to hang in our home. Not too shabby for some unexpected crafting!
