An adventurous outing on the weekend, and some bidding skills throughout the family, a box of wooden scraps was purchased. Old furniture legs and cornice pieces were included in this throw away box. We quickly put our creative hats on and the DIY skills into practice and planned to make a Welcome entrance sign. Nothing too fancy! Just a little country and rustic!
We had electric drills, glue, sand paper, paint brushes, paint, our table was full of materials and our minds were a blur of mixed mediums and techniques. Time has passed since I’ve put my hand script writing to the test, but those long time skills came back in a brush stroke.
We used a cut out wooden craft letter for the W, and the key purchased for a small amount of money from a garden centre. The wood was water coloured painted and treated with a crackle paint technique, a medium used often to give a rustic, antique look.
