Summer is almost here, and I’m all over it! During one of my
biweekly occasional trips to the thrift store (‘the GW’) I came across these beautiful ornate wooden plates.
There were about 10 of them stacked up nicely, neat, and clean. What would I do with them? Yet, how could I possibly pass them up? I couldn’t. But I only took 6 out of principle. Sometimes I don’t understand my own logic.
Anyway, check out the pretty detail on these babies! They’re solid wood! Oh, I forgot the best part… 99 cents a piece!
I thought I’d paint two of them yellow and hang them up in the staircase amongst the sea of my kid’s pictures. And what better message to write on them than ‘you are my sunshine’, cause they are!
I took them outside and got to painting with the spray can:
Went over it again lightly with the white primer, just in the middle. Then with vinyl letters I spelled out the words ‘you are my’ on one plate, and ‘sunshine’ on the other.
For the second plate I used larger letters (4″) for the ‘Sun’ half of the word, and the usual 2″ letters for the ‘shine’ half.
Adding one more coat of yellow over the whole thing.
Join me at these FABULOUS linky parties!
