It's supposed to look like old country signs that were painted real fast like. We were going to use scraps of new wood I had laying around but my bestie, Ashley, said she wanted some old looking wood. So I started figuring out how we could give new wood an aged look (which I saw an interesting tutorial that looked easy. You just mix water and baking soda and spray it on your wood and an hour later you have aged lookin wood. It worked in the video tutorial and I would be interested to try it). BUT! Around my home town there are a lot of old beautiful Victorian homes (drool), and we were walking past one when we saw a pile of a bunch of rotten, termite eaten wood planks that were PERFECT! And the owner was sitting on the porch. So after a "Can we take some of this wood for some wedding signs pretty please with a cherry on top?" he said yes! So there it is! Very excited. We still have a lot more to do but it will all be great! More pics to come.
On another note: This is what happens when we go shopping when we're hungry.
But just so you know,
So, as for the next couples days? More wedding stuff!
Oh! And I will be posting an update on my craft room re-do in the next couple days. I'm super torn about the color. I'll show ya later though! Happy pre-Easter planning and what not! =)
