Finally getting a few minutes to do a new post! The past week has been a fun week at work – I’ve gotten to see a lot of my favorite speechies out at their schools and am enjoying getting back into my routine, albeit crazy and a little busy!
It was packaged in a good-sized box and wrapped very well in paper to protect it – the wood is kind of thin and delicate. My plan to use this beautiful monogram was to put it on a canvas and paint the whole thing one color (easy enough!) to put on a shelf in our dining room. I planned to use the best glue ever (super toxic, but works on everything) to attach the wood monogram to the canvas.
I decided to go with a gray paint color, since it’s all the rage right now. Most of our furniture is black, so I felt like it tied together all the colorful paintings on the wall into the furniture and I mixed black and white acrylic paint to get exactly the color I wanted.
Then, after the glue dried for a little while, I painted the whole thing. Note: it may be easier to paint the canvas first and THEN paint the monogram once you glue it on, it was a little tough to get in all the nooks and crannies of the script font used for the monogram.
I also made the pieces with song lyrics, read more HERE. Is anyone else feeling this monogram trend? I love monograms (we had ours all over our wedding almost 5 years ago) and I’m super excited that it’s easier to get a variety of different monograms in such fantastic fonts right now!
