Grandkids Sign



 Just wanted to show you some quick pics of the sign I made for my mother-in-law's birthday.  We celebrated her birthday on Tuesday and well, I kinda' procrastinated a little...

I purchased the wooden board on Monday night and started the project Tuesday morning.  I used a couple coats of gel stain --with a short dry time between each coat -- sprayed it with polyurethane, and then distressed the edges using sandpaper. 

 Needless to say, it was a little tacky when I added the vinyl letters and still wasn't completely dry when I gave it to her! 

{It feels good to confess that I'm really a last-minute, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of crafter!}


Anyway, she really liked the sign and is proudly displaying it in her living room!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
