Wayne and I made this sign 9 years ago when we bought our cottage.
This is at the entrance to our driveway.
I have to say it has weathered pretty well.
We did put on a clear coat after we painted it.
But in taking a closer look...it needed a bit of TLC.
After 9 yrs, I forgot which paint colour I used on the letters.
So I brought my 7 different shades of burgundy paint with me and can you believe I still had the same one...see I really shouldn't purge my supplies ;)
Painting the antique white wasn't a problem....until I got to the hand painted flowers I drew and painted on it.
Hmmmm, paint over them, redraw them and paint them again...or paint around them?
That was my question.
It would be so easy to just paint over them....but did I really want to have to redesign them again?
So I decided to paint around them.
I (of course) forgot the paints for the flowers at home, so I will have to touch those up next weekend as well as the leaves and swirls.
I just painted over the swirls those are easy enough to do later.
Now doesn't that look so much better.
I didn't have to repaint our individual names as they are brought in for the winter....so we know which season is harder...no wonder I hibernate come winter ;)
And this happened today :)
I am so excited to share with you not only what I am doing with this, but how it turns out :)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and were able to be a little creative :)
