She Will Move Mountains

Strut Yo’ Stuffz

Today my friend Ellie (Lauren) is strutting a sign she made for her sweet baby’s nursery.  Ellie’s blog, My Happy Thought  is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.  She shares all the happy things about her, her husband, and baby Paisley.  Go visit her and tell her Kenz says, “Word up.”

She took a light weight board and modge-podged dictionary paper all over it.  Let that dry completely before doing the next step.  Once that’s dry as an elbow*, stick vinyl on top of it.  It could be anything.  A pattern, a quote, a silhouette, a bum print… you decide.  If you don’t have a vinyl cutter, let me know, and I can hook you up with a good dealer.

After your vinyl is good and stuck down, paint the crap out of it.  Ellie spray painted hers a nice apple red.

When your color is dry, peel the vinyl off.  Ellie went an extra step by classying it up.  She mounted a piece of plexi-glass to the front.  I love it.  It now lives in baby Paisley’s room.

Don’t you love the way it turned out?  Such a gussy piece.  Make sure to check out the full tutorial on Ellie’s blog.

And don’t be shy!  If you’d like to strut, please email me at interiorsbykenz@gm[email protected].  It doesn’t need to be a full tutorial.  You can just send me a picture of a finished product if you’d like. 

Come back tomorrow for another day of snooping through my house.

*if you have really dry elbows, try cutting a grape fruit in half and soaking your elbows in that for 30 mins.  Then come back and tell me thank you.
