Or this in black from Weddingbycolor's Love him first.
My landlord was taking down a few picket fences from our backyard and I thought to myself OMG these would be perfect signs. I already have silver spraypaint and black acrylic paint and paint brushes. I could make this work. After going on my favorite wedding inspiration site, Weddingbee, I decided that I could do this. All I needed was a sheet of typing paper, and to shade the back...
And I would just have to trace it on the wood, and it would magically transfer. A bippity boppity boo...
Well, Cinderella would be ashamed. What I ended up with was this ugly as cariacture of what it was supposed to be. OMG. This is terrible. I am supposed to be a professional. Notice even my stepdaughter to be's paintbrish stopped when she saw this.
So then I decided to "fix" it because that's what I do... I decided I would spray paint the paper and then trace over the letters in black and affix that to the sign.
Yep, still a fail and man oh man can I not friggin' paint. So then I decided, hell rustic isn't THAT bad.... (a temporary moment of insanity because how in the hell does rustic go with feathers and chandeliers, I'm not too sure).
Happy enough with my progress for the day, I went to bed. Thinking I can't believe how badly I f'd this one up. I mean OMG this is terrible. And I even texted my mom to say that this was a complete failure and I was glad that stepdad Mocha was making a sign to hang the banner that my mom had sewn. About four hours later a light bulb went off.
I got it!! I remembered that I had bought letter stamps for another project about a year ago. I pulled it out and began my first stamp. It was working!!! Here is what I ended up with. Yes you can still see the ugly Edwardian script monstrosity that I created in the back, but did I care, NOPE. I figured it out!!!
Here it is in another light with the obligatory Fleur de lis added from my new state...
You can still see the stupid W (cursing myself) from my earlier screw up, but did I care?! Nope. It was working!! My fi and stepdaughter-to-be came outside because I believe they thought I'd lost my mind. And well.... I agree but I was soo excited to show them this lol!!!!! Although even my stepdaugther noticed it was crooked :D
Here is my final picture from this morning all dry and yes admittedly crooked.
Did/Is anyone else doing projects the last few weeks before the wedding? How is it turning out? I am sort of happy with this one, especially after I do it straight in a line, although I may leave this one as is and just do the other side lol!!!!
