Lately we have been working on on our sunporch area. It's been a work-in-progress for many years, slowly evolving as we have time to work on it. We have been concentrating on the dining area portion of the space, and I am happy to say it is nearly finished! It just needs a few moldings and a lighting change and it will be ready to share. I've been working on little projects to decorate the space and wanted to share a very simple one with you today.
I'm sure you're familiar with boxboard letters
at craft stores...they are so great for all kinds of signs and graphics projects and there are many wonderful ones on
Pinterest and blogs for inspiration.
For my project, I used 6" letters, as this is going above a doorway, but you can use any size depending on where you want to hang it.
Then I used an old board, nothing special, just long enough to extend out past behind the letters...
and shorter than the letter height.
Now, I wasn't kidding when I said this was very simple...
it took 15 minutes to make.
I painted the letters black with craft paint, and glued (I used permanent glue dots) them on the board, so that the board was centered behind the letters. That gave it the 3-D look of a piece pulled off of another sign...
It is mounted over our French doors and makes a real statement piece against the lighter background.
After all of the painting and building,
a SIMPLE project is just what I needed!
Until next time...
