Yesterday I just finished the big sign that will go over the baby's crib. Here it is!
I had originally designed the whole thing to be a big vinyl sticker, but the vinyl and I had a fight and I lost. So, plan B was started. I purchased this large sheet of MDF for about $6. It's not the thinnest kind they sell, but the second thinnest. I sketched out a cloud and my rockstar dad cut it out for me.
I took the cloud and spray painted it white first. It took a fair amount of coats because MDF really sucks in the paint.
I designed the text and cut the vinyl letters out on my Silhouette and then applied them to the sign using transfer tape. The quote is one I've seen in a few places and I liked the idea of it.
Then I sprayed the sign with Krylon's glitter blast in gold. It's a little pricey at $6 a can and I ended up needing 2 to really cover it evenly. However, it worked well. I peeled the vinyl letters off and....
....and the sign was finished. Now it just needs to be hung up.
A few more little projects and the nursery will be done. I asked Rex if he liked the nursery the other day and he said he did, but that I'd have to take it all down soon anyhow. I asked why and he said, "Because we're going to teach her to like all the things we do and she's going to want superheroes on the walls instead." Oh. I guess we'll see about that one :)
Thanks for reading.
