Ahhh what an absolutely gorgeous day it was today in the Carolina’s. I worked outside just about most of it. Cleaning up the pollen, and did a little gardening. I also made a DIY porch sign. Not much to it considering this is redoo from my last pallet sign.
Back in 2011 I made this Pallet garden sign. It was inspired from a magazine and you can go back and check out that post. It was a lot of fun and this piece remained the same up until the past few days. Considering it was faded, all I had to do it throw a coat of chalky paint over the existing. It covered very well.
I found this cute porch stencil on Etsy. You can see I lightly distressed and dry brushed the chalky paint on a few places.
This is the same color I have been using this season, for instance on my chalky paint mason jar, Spring in a can and a few other projects I already forgot all that I have done. The color is Escape, and the black is called carbon.
I do LOVE my chalky paint stash and have every color. You of course can use any color you like as well to compliment your decor. You can find this paint at Home depot, Michael’s and Hobby lobby.
This rooster stencil I have had for a few years now. It may look familiar, as I have used it on my Chalkboard window ,and Drop cloth pillow, just to name a few off hand that I can remember. I’m sure if you check out my stencil gallery you will see it a few more times. It would appear since turning 49 on the 12th, I am losing my memory. Could be menopause symptoms too. I hear that is quite common:) UGH!
That is just how simple it was and it all came together just as cute as cute can be.
This guy here is a solar rooster. Looks super cute at night. Found him at Lowe’s home improvement. They had a pig too I believe. The cashier said they are selling like hot cakes. The rooster was the last one on the shelf.
Thanks for stopping over today. If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.
