Spring is in the air, yay!
The weekend here in NY was just extraordinary.
We had sun, it was warm(er), the birds were singing,
what could be better after being cooped up all winter.
To celebrate the start of the new season I thought I would share details for this easy rustic “NEST” sign.
Micheal’s has these large MDF letters.
I love the size & price, they are ONLY $2.99.
The first layer I aged with a vinegar & steel wool solution. Leave a hunk of the finest steel wool in sealed jar for 1-3 days or until dissolved.
After & Before
Then applied 1 coat of Robin’s Egg Blue acrylic craft paint.
I sanded each letter with a fine sandpaper & then applied the aging solution over the top, then wiped off the excess.
Not bad for around $12, right?
Here are some other simple touches of Spring that I have sprinkled around our family room.
