Planning for our housewarming party is just around the corner (I hope), and I’ve decided that I want our guests to feel welcome from the moment they walk in the door.
So, how about taking that literally, and creating a sign that says “welcome” right in the front entryway?
I found this little guy hanging out with the more grown-up picture frames at our local Goodwill. And it was 75% off the marked price.
Hmm. Not exactly my style (bears in hats????), but I think I can change that. I’ve got a can of chalkboard paint I’ve been dying to try out.
I started with a few coats of spray paint on the frame (Krylon’s Gloss spray paint in Almond, to be exact)…but it wasn’t quite right. I dove into my craft paints and dry brushed varying shades of white and ivory until I saw a finish I could live with.
Attach the frame to the painted MDF, and voila! Now we have a place in our hallway to greet our guests. I can’t wait to see what funny things they’ll write on here (please no goofy images…you know who you are!).
