Once upon a 30-days-of-craftiness, I started the following project. I initially thought I’d put a profile of my dog on it, with a lovely pup quote. Stay with me, anti-dog lovers out there. And then we found out we were expecting, and as stated here, all craftiness went out the window for naps on the couch with Law & Order: SVU playing in the background. Said dog quote was never found, and the initial workings of the project just waited patiently in the garage for the perfect inspirational quote. And then, sunshine, it was found.
Step 1: find fabulous piece of wood with potential at neighbors’ garage sale:
Step 2: distress said piece of wood with Dove soap:
Step 3: paint over entire piece with plain ol’ white paint:
Step 4: take sandpaper and sand over the entire piece of wood, concentrating on the parts with soap underneath the paint:
Then, let sit for four months in the garage and admit that growing a baby is hard work.
Step 5: realize that “You are my Sunshine” in gray and yellow are the perfect colors and words, not only for this piece of wood, but for the baby’s room!
I love it! What are you creating?0
