Because I needed another hobby!

This morning and last Monday some friends and I had a craft get together. One friend has a vinyl letter maching and gave me some to play with. When I got home I was lucky enough to find some old boards in the garage. I had my husband cut one of them in two. I've been painting them all week with white paint and wondering what color they should end up. Finally today I decided that enough was enough. I sanded the edges and adhered the vinyl. I have to say that I really like them. I can see that this could be a very addicting hobby. I'm actually glad that I just left them white. I think they look great. Now... Should I just put sawtooth hangers on the back or attempt to add ribbon hangers? Probably will just go with sawtooth hangers for now and if I come across any ribbon down the road I can snazz them up a bit later. Just wanted to share my new project. Now every time I see a blank surface I imagine the perfect vinyl lettering that it needs. Soon I'll be ripping off my kitchen cabinet doors and turning them into cute signs. I'm sure my landlord won't mind!
