DIY Wood Sign For Any Occassion

I love to craft, create and paint. I’m not the best at it but I definitely enjoy the entire process. Here’s a recent project of a wood sign I created for my friend’s baby shower. So simple and fun to make! Enjoy.

Materials

  • Scrap wood (I used wood plank for flooring)
  • Hammer
  • Nails
  • Acrylic non-glossy paint
  • Paint brush
  • Pen / Pencil
  • Newspaper / Painting cloth
  • Stencil of quote / design (or you can hand draw it)

Steps

  • Depending on the wood you have, you may need to distress and stain it.

  • Once all your wood planks are hammered, stand and pitch your sign for your guests to see.
  • Add some flowers to decorate your sign.

Weekend Recap

Weekends are magical and I always have the hardest time saying goodbye to them when they come to an end. Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend.

A good read on the balcony followed by “AMY” at NightLight (the cutest theater) with friends. I highly recommend you watch the film if you can catch it. It’s a tragic story but one people should know.

Surprise donuts and thank you cards from our sweet intern followed by a Calligraphy 101 class at Lovely Paperie and Gifts in Rocky River. The boutique and class were  A-FREAKING-DORABLE. I loved every minute of it! I plan on practicing all winter long .. I mean, what else is there to do?Processed with VSCOcam with lv01 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

Summer Fridays are my absolute jam! We get to leave work at 12:30pm every Friday in the Summer which usually means, if the sun is shining you can find me at the pool. This Friday, my friend and I enjoyed some rays by the pool followed by a delicious assortment of specialty rolls, ice cream and some late night crafting. It was kind of perfect.Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

Saturday was spent working on baby shower crafts and some paintings for my darling friends new home. We spent the majority of the day laughing, eating, jamming out to music and getting a lot of crap done for the shower this upcoming weekend. Boom.Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

Travel Recap: San Francisco, CA

I just got back from a wonderful long weekend in San Francisco, CA. I had the privilege of traveling on business to Outside Lands Music Festival … I know, right?! Spoiled. SF is one of my absolute favorite cities to visit. There is so much to see, do and eat! I was lucky enough to do some sight-seeing, run the Golden Gate Bridge, eat some delicious food, shop and last but definitely not least, enjoy some SICK music at Outside Lands. I can’t tell you how dreamy it was — I think I’m still on a music high. Someone, please, pinch me.

Day 1 Recap: ungodly early flight, breakfast at Farm Table, a stroll through Lombard Street and Fisherman’s Wharf and dinner at La Mar.

Day 2 Recap: long run to and through the Golden Gate Bridge, day 1 of Outside Lands Music Festival, caught a bunch of acts including Mumford & Sons, St. Vincent, Broods, First Aid Kit, The Drums and Wilco, late night drinks at Sir Frances Drakes Starlight Room and a 2 am McFlurry at McDonald’s (I’m not sorry).

On Sunday, my friends were great and greeted me with donuts before heading out to the Bridgestone Invitational. I had a great time despite not knowing much about golf. After an afternoon of fun I finally went home to catch up on sleep. Jet lag, much?!
