I attended the sweetest wedding in early June, where I was able to play a special part. Of course the bride is one of my super sweet friends, nonetheless it was a gorgeous evening and I was thrilled to be able to add a special touch to their perfect day with a collection of handcrafted wooden wedding signs.
Neither the bride or groom are super fans of cake, so they had glittery donuts [on National Donut Day at that!] and milk + cookies! It was such a cute idea, I enjoyed working around the vision.
The bride had me build a collection of rustic wooden wedding signs she used from engagement photos to wedding day decor. I used a medium brown wood stain and of course my favorite Country Chic Paint. The stained wedding signs are embellished with hand lettering and finished off with some simple sanding over the painted words and edges; creating the perfectly worn look.
The painted wedding sign, Sweet Love, has a base layer of Sweet Dreams and a top coat of Vanilla Frosting. Vanilla Frosting is my go-to color for almost every project needing a creamy white, it covers most colors with two coats and sands like a dream. Something wonderful about chalk paint, is that you can repair any mess-up. I had a little error with one of the letters and was able to sand it down to the Sweet Dreams base, reapply the top coat, smooth and blend with a sanding sponge and finish off the spot with a little distressing.
