A Vintage Hanger to Welcome Sign - 31 Days of Junque Decor
It's Day 31!!!!
We've made it!!
I hope you've had fun along this journey with me. It was a LOT of work, but I loved every minute of creating. It really feeds my soul.
Now that we're at the end, I sure hope you will continue to come on back to the blog and join me on a regular basis. I have LOADS more projects to share with you that are still sitting around my house half done! I have many ideas floating around inside my head at the moment as well! Plus I have some other fun craft projects to share that don't necessarily fit into the "junque" category!
So here's my final project, a Welcome sign for our front porch. This is my first experiment with chalkboard paint.
I started with a vintage suit hanger and a metal sign that I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $2.00. It's been in my stash for awhile, but I couldn't pass up that price at the time!
The first coat of my paint was very thin. I'm not sure if I chose a cheap quality or if this is what to expect since it was my first time. It took 3 layers of chalkboard paint before I was satisfied with the result.
I glued on a strip of lace at the bottom, just to fancy it up a bit. My chalkboard handwriting isn't really up to par, it will need some practice, but this will be fine for now. I have added it to the vintage ladder on the front porch.
And that's a wrap! Thank you all for joining me on this 31 Days of Junque Decor journey!!
