I LOVE transforming something ugly and out-dated into something sweet and usable. This sweet little sign evolved from such materials.
It all started out with this ugly scrap of wood, an out-dated flower brooch, a chipped up lock latch. and recycled door knob.
The latch I have had for quite awhile and I have always been drawn to the dusty pink paint that shows through all the chipping. I decided to use that as our main color. That required some paint mixing, but I covered the ugly wood and out-dated brooch to bring new life and sweetness.
Then I had to assemble it all for sturdy construction which involved some drilling, wiring, gluing and hammering. A small little pearly pink button completed the center of the brooch and hid the screw I used to attach the brooch to the door handle.
Last, but not least, I added the "You are my sunshine" quote in our brown matte vinyl and sealed it all for the finished touch. LOVE this great little transformation!

This quote on our upcycled wood is in high demand right now in the stores.
So I need to create!
It's always fun to add some BLING with this saying...
so I found an awesome vintage plate from a dresser knob and a bright pink glitzy button:
I have this old cupboard door set aside and I think it will work perfectly for the quote and the bling!
Now, off to paint and create!

Sometimes the most unassuming piece of wood can produce such a sweet little piece! This cute little guy is the perfect example.
