From Kate and Sean’s wedding.
I have been lucky the past two summers and was asked to be in two of my best friend’s weddings ( and another next summer! ). For both weddings, I helped the bride makes these signs from old wood doors I found at Silverlake Architectual Salvage.
Clearly the signs needs to be cleaned off. The paint is often coming off, but I like this look. Get yourself some cleaner, a rag, a pencil, black acrylic paint, different size paint brushes depending on your preference and handwriting, water, a paint rag, and of course a beer! I drew the word on first with pencil. Go back over the pencil with black paint as though you are using a pen writing cursive. . You can go back through the touch up the spots where needed. I did this a few times!
Greg and Rebecca used the signs as props and sent these cards out as a thank you! So cute!
