Today I’m showing you how I took 2 wooden thrift store plaques and transformed them into trendy hand lettered art.
I always try and grab up wooden frames and plaques for dirt cheap when I’m thrifting.
They are usually only a few dollars and being wooden they have much longer life spans!
Here is one of the plaques before I finished…
My sweet hubby asked the same question!
I replied with, “Because it doesn’t match the rest of the kitchen!”
So I gathered my supplies
-black acrylic paint
-gold paint pen from Walmart with the chisel tip
It took me about 2 coats with a couple of “touch up” spots.
Then I browsed Pinterest for some handlettering inspiration.
Check out my DIY Wall Art board!
This was my first shot of it before I filled in some of the lighter areas on the letters.
I also lightly wrote out with pencil the design and then I went back over it with the painters pen.
I made another one too but my husband informed me I spelled something wrong so that one will need to fixed.
It’s still hanging on the wall though!
So I hope you found this tutorial easy enough to maybe complete on your own!
Or maybe it will inspire you to create something all your own!
Happy Crafting and Happy Saturday!
