We have friends who unfortunately, and so sadly, lost their house to flooding in the Fall of 2011. It was the "100 year flood" here in southcentral PA and it devastated a part of my home town.
By the grace of God and some help from family and friends, they are about to move into a new house. :-) I knew that I wanted to make them something, so this is what I came up with.
I recently bought a damask stencil for my master bedroom accent wall from Royal Design Stencil. I just love it and knew that it could be perfect for this project, too.
I had a piece of wood that I bought from AC Moore a long time ago. So, I painted it white with latex paint in an eggshell finish.
Then, I mixed two Folk Art metallic acrylic paints to reach my desired color...light gray/silver. The colors are Pearl White and Metallic Gunmetal Gray.
I used a sponge brush to stipple on the paint. Next, I cut out a vinyl "W" in Iskoola Pota font and placed it in the middle. Two coats of matte finish polyurethane and it's complete.
This was really easy and I think looks very elegant. A perfect housewarming gift!
Here you can get an idea of the metallic paint...
