Shabby Glam Sign...

I found some curtains for my daughter's room at IKEA, and I've been slowly piecing her room together using those as my inspiration. I have an idea that I got from Char at Crap I've made that involves wood shutters. I made this sign SPECIFICALLY to be hung with the shutters once they are finished. I found them on Craigslist and am going to pick them up tomorrow! Talk about stoked. I can't wait to show you all the final product!!

To make my "shabby glam" sign I purchased a 16x20 canvas from Hobby Lobbythen painted it one of the colors that is in the curtains.

Here's your plain white canvas..

Paint please? I chose this color..

I really wanted to spray paint this to save time...oh well..

Most of you bloggies have worked with vinyl, have a machine that cuts it, etc. So I will save you time and won't bore you with the tutorial on how to cut/transfer/apply vinyl lettering :)

My next step was to apply the vinyl I designed and cut out to my dried canvas and glue on some "bling." I love it.  

Here's the end result with the curtains next to it..

It's feels soooo good to have this room coming together. I love having an idea in my head and actually seeing it come to life. Now on to the shutters...... ;-)
