{LOVE} Beadboard Sign

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought these cardboard letters.


Stuck push pins in the back of the letters to raise it off of the counter so I could paint them with out it sticking.



I had bought Martha Stewart paints at Michaels for this project.


The color palette I chose.


 A look at the 'chippy' paint job. I used the soap trick to distress this paint project.


The finished product with the letters glued on with E6000 glue.


Can you see that the letters were painted in a 'pearl' finish paint. I love that look. A little sparkle in the paint.


I chose to put the sign on my entryway table.
