I love projects. I really love quick and easy projects that make me feel like I have accomplished something with not too much effort. I have always loved decorating with letters.
I was inspired by a fellow Oregonian blogger at Pink Postcard. She was nice enough to explain to me how she did it and how she found the alphabet online.
My printer doesn't work so I had to figure out a way to do it without printing. I traced my computer screen! Then I went to Fed Ex and copied it in different sizes.
Then I did an old technique I learned at a ceramic shop-- I traced the letter onto tissue paper and then laid the tissue paper on my project and traced again with a fine line Sharpie. The Sharpie soaks through and there you have it--your image ready to paint!
It is really easy and a fun way to transfer something when you don't have a working printer!
So the B is for our family name--but there are all sorts of pretty letters in this alphabet. I wanted to put an S somewhere so I decided to put one on my recently painted bottle.
You can find the alphabet I used here. It says to feel free to use it--so feel free! :)
I have always thought our bed is so pretty but was missing something. I think a B is just what it needed!
Now I just need to get to stenciling that wall behind the bed :) There is always another project calling my name!
Usually a cat or dog wants to lay on the bed when I am trying to take a picture--this time it was a bored teenager!
I hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer. I am seeing Halloween and Fall stuff being brought into the stores. I am not ready! Here is to hoping summer is not a mere memory quite yet...
Thanks for visiting!
