Shuddering as I look at this. This is what you see when you look to the right after coming into our house.
Apparently one of the boys took a hammer to it at some point.
Because they are boys.
Look how gross and dirty it is. Bleeeech...
So I got out some paint left over from this project and mixed it with some cream paint leftover from who knows what and got to work.
I wanted to do something besides just the paint. 'Cause that door is U.G.L.Y.
Here is what I ended up with.
What do you think? All the hubsters said was "It's a lot of words". What is wrong with that man?
I used a simple transfer method.
All you do is print off the words in whatever font you choose and flip the paper over. Color with pencil over the letters (on the back of the paper).
I used a level and some chalk to draw lines onto the door. If you have read any of my entries you know I am notorious for crooked writing.
Then flip the paper back onto the printed side (not the side with pencil) and trace over the letters. You will be left with the outline.
Then just fill in with paint using a steady hand. I only did one coat, I kinda liked the chalky painted look of it after one coat.
At least I don't have to look at that dirty metal door anymore. Now if someone could just come clean up that garage...
P.S I'm linking up to these great parties:
