pallet sign

I found this awesome tutorial 
for painting signs...
and had to try it on some pallet pieces~


simply print out the letters in a cute font...
the tutorial said to color in charcoal on the back 
and then trace over the top on your wood
then the image would transfer~however,
I used the rough side of the wood
and had to cut out the letters and trace them
actually onto the wood...

then you can use a Sharpie to trace and color in 
the words...


I became impatient with the Sharpie...
then used another marker,
followed by a few coats of paint
to get the color right

then I dappled on some white paint
to give it a little texture,
and sanded over the top a bit...


whallaaa, cuteness in the kids' bathroom! 


here's a peak at the pain-in-the-behind
shower curtain I stitched up (an Anthro knock-off)...

I'm still struggling with a paint color or wallpaper for 
the walls...what to do???
I picked up a darling stencil pattern, 
but I am not sure if I want to dive into 
that commitment on all surfaces or not....

this bathroom and our laundry room
are still awaiting a paint job. 
it's on my summer to-do list...
I'm leaning towards a sea green or gray in this 
bathroom (maybe with the stencil maybe not?)

OH, that is adorable!!! What a great sign, and I would love to have your pain in the butt shower curtain. I think the stencil sounds like a great idea, I wallpapered my bathroom and although I love it, it is expensive and bathrooms are the hardest to paper. If you decide to wallpaper let me know and I will be over to help you (After you fly me out)LOL!!

Love the sign! And I know that shower curtain had to be a HUGE pain, but it looks amazing. What about gray for the walls?
