Remember THIS post awhile ago? Well, finallyyy, I painted it onto the piece of wood and put it up on my wall! 🙂 I love it! And although it was time consuming, it was also very therapeutic, and the results came out perfect. I found an AWESOME way of painting letters (or shapes) onto wood, that I just thought to myself, well DUH! How have I never thought of that?! Much like everything else on Pinterest! haha.
I started by covering the piece of wood with paper, and then taping it together. Obviously, if you have a larger roll of paper, you could just cut it out to the shape and size of your piece of wood. Then, I marked the layout of the quote, and wrote it out, tracing it from my computer, like I’ve done so many times before. You could of course get this printed at a photo copy store, I just did it this way to save some money, and because I’m impatient and didn’t feel like waiting….mostly because of the impatient thing lol.
Now, here comes the transferring part. I found it from this blogger on pinterest (thank you, you smart person, you!!) You basically just trace over the letters with a ball point pent, using a good amount of pressure, so the pen leaves an indent in the wood. Then, using the indentations as your guidelines, you paint the letters in. Smart, huh?!
