The last few months I have been helping a good friend plan and organize for her daughters wedding. During all of the planning and crafting, I got a good feel for her daughters style. As I helped with several decorations I knew that making them a Family name sign would be perfect! My first thought was to use some old boards or pallet wood. As I began looking through my wood hoard, I remembered that last year I had put together about 18 of these bracket boards! I am crazy) Sometimes when I get in the groove of a project, I get carried away! If saws, equipment, materials and time are in place then sometimes I just go for it. I have loved the shape of these brackets for years, I am hoping they will stay trendy for a while longer. I was so happy during my search for wood to remember these fun boards. I pulled one out and they are just the perfect size so, I applied a dark walnut stain and let it cure overnight. Then using my personal cutting machine, I typed in the name and wording to create a template. I cut the template out of a heavy cardstock and then taped it into place on the bracket board. Next I used some what wall paint and sponge brush to paint the wording onto the board. I pulled the template off of the board before the paint was completely dry. I have found removing the template before it is dry, gives less bleeding of paint on to the project. I let the painted name dry completely and then used my electric sander to rough it up.
I hope the happy new couple will enjoy this sign in their home for many years to come.
