Merry & Bright Tour & Sign DIY

How many days ’til Christmas! If you’re not ready, you better get a move on it ūüėČ I’ve had so much fun getting to know some new blogger friends during our Merry & Bright Tour and I hope you have too! I am also sharing a Sign DIY from scrap lumber and a decal. I used a fun color of spray Chalky Paint from Krylon in New Leaf. I think I love green almost as much as I love blue!

Did you notice the green sign…thanks to Candi from Welcoming Wall¬†for the Merry & Bright decal.

I just happen to have way too many pieces of left over wood. Or should I say, luckily I had the perfect piece of scrap wood ūüėČ

DIY steps for makeover

Paint the wood. Lightly sand, I sanded in a pattern of stripes. That’s the beauty of chalky paint, so easy to sand and get the look that you want. Wipe the board with a lint free cloth to remove paint and saw dust. Remove backing from the label. Measure and position the decal. Use an old credit card to smooth over the decal. Start removing the backing at the edge of the backing, do this slowly to make sure the decal adhered properly. Add a picture hanger to the back and hang!
