The boot was a planter gifted to my niece at her new horse barn open house, the plant didn't survive but I told her I would come up with something to reuse the boot
it was a pre made sign ... I sanded the original words off ----stenciled on my own (love all these country songs about boots lol) sprayed a little finish on fastened the boot on with wood screws from the back side ...... there you have it
removed the metal clips and sanded off the meters
sanded off the letters and removed the clips
Stenciled the words that I wanted on it I used chalk because I don’t want the letters to be perfect , then I used acrylic paint with a small brush to make the letters more permanent. I sprayed with a matte finish to set the letters.
I predrilled the hole in the side of the boot heal and also the slat and then put a screw from the back side to hold the boot in place at the bottom. The top of the boot I did with a shorter screw to hold it up at the top of the boot. I also did a screw through to the sole of the boot closer to the middle to attach it to the slat and help keep the shape of the boot.
Finished !! The boots a little weathered but makes it perfect for the wording.
Finished. !! ❤️ My niece was thrilled
