This is what the piece of driftwood looked like before I started. Very ordinary!
DIY Welcome Sign on Drift Wood
A client of mine found this beautiful piece of drift wood while she was on vacation on the West Coast. When she asked me to paint "WELCOME" on it for her I gladly obliged.
She planned to put the finished project outside under her semi-covered front porch and because I knew it had the potential of being in the elements of the weather, I chose to use an Acrylic paint to ensure the paint itself did not weather.
Take a look at what I did to create her beautiful sign:
These are the materials I used:
- Paint brush
- Piece of driftwood
You really don't need much for this easy project!
I placed my stencils on the piece of wood to ensure they would all fit. I then used the white acrylic paint that I got from Michael's to fill in the letters.
I used two coats of this chalk paint and it covered the wood wonderfully!
And that was it!
What do you think? I think it turned out great!
