Greg's cousin, Kayla, got married last Saturday. It was such a gorgeous wedding. We had a nice time catching up with family members we don't get to see very often and those we do see more often. Everyone was dressed up with somewhere to go!
For their wedding gift, I wanted to make something just for them. I wanted it to be personal. I thought this sign would be a perfect addition to the new house they bought and are fixing up.
I do have to confess ~ I totally copied this idea from Sasha at Lemonade Makin' Mama. I wasn't sure what colors they used to decorate their house, so I picked colors that I think will go with just about anything. Pretty neutral.
I love the soft blue of the background and how it takes on a subtle & worn look when I antiqued it.
We had a chance to visit Kayla's new house this week. The colors of the sign are just right and will look awesome in their new home.
I pretty much love how the sign turned out!
So, why stop there! I'm on a roll. While Greg was cutting the length of the wood down for me, I had him cut a few other lengths as well.
For this sign I used the same colors again. I added more of the scroll work behind the letters.
This sign will be perfect for a kitchen, dining room, or anywhere else people eat. I distressed and antiqued it. It's a little bit shabby and a whole lot of chic!
I already started another one with a different (yet equally neutral) background color. What should it say? Any ideas? Leave your ideas in the comments!
