creative word art

How has your week been going?  It’s been a mixture of super productive and super frustrating for me.  You know when you have a partial week and you can’t decide if squeezing the week’s work into a few days is really worth the days off?!  I’m going to go ahead and say it’s worth it. I’m heading out first thing tomorrow morning to join my college girlfriends in Charleston for some overdue bonding and wine drinking.  It’s been two years since we’ve all been together… too long.

Onto today’s DIY.  I’ve never been a huge fan of word art and always kind of feel like it’s a bit hokey or something.  It takes a special piece for me to be like, “yeah, I want to put that in my house”.  Do you know what I mean?

Regardless of my word art feelings, however, I wanted to use this phrase somewhere after seeing it all over the internet. I felt a monochromatic black and white piece would be understated and modern, so I forged ahead breaking my own rules and creating this little gem.

AND it was quite easy.  If you can glue and spray paint, you’ve got all the necessary skills to complete this piece.

ONE: Choose the letters you’d like to use.  TWO: Glue the letters to the back board of your frame, making sure to mark straight lines for a guide.

THREE:  Spray the entire thing one color, then put it into your frame!

I think something like this is a high gloss pastel would be adorable for a children’s room as well.  There are so many possibilities and color combos that would be really beautiful.

So, will you give it a go?  Tell me below what phrase or quotation has been on your mind that would work well for this project!

Have a fun rest of your week!  I’ll be back later this week posting the usually Friday LIST from sunny South Carolina!
