Inspiration...pass it on!

*** Because someone asked..yes! I have one in my Etsy if you would like...smiles~***


Oh have I got a good one for you today {I hope}. What I want most out of this blog is to connect with you girls. My prayer is that you leave every post with a giggle,touched heart,new found friendship or INSPIRATION! And girls...do I have some for you! I have been working on this picture above for days now and I'm going to take you step by step...

I first started with some good ole' inspiration. I saw this sign and it just tickled my fancy! But for $329.00 I will just enjoy their inspiration for free~

Now I know some of you worry about getting it just perfect,letters and all... Take a close look at Pottery Barns version...perfect? No...so do you think you can? Great I just knew you would say Yes!

I used a thin piece of board for mine because I didn't want to hang anything too heavy. I measured out my squares. 6 across and 6 down. You can make them any size you want depending on your board. I tried to stick with PB dimensions.

I painted it an ivory color. You need to go with something light because we will be staining later. I used a cup to draw my circles.

Paint your circles in black. I used craft paint from walmart if your wondering.

For those of you that are like me and need some extra help....print your font on paper and use as a guide.

You can use trace paper or I tend to just trace over the font and use a little bit of pressure.

You are now ready to paint in your letters. It will seem like you will spend days here but just take your time and have some fun with it!

Now for those neat little accent lines around your letters..I used a lid from a thermos.

Just dip in in a saucer of paint and press down.

I didn't make a complete circle on all of them. I just had fun with it and tried not to copy PB line for line. Be creative with yours. Let YOU... show through!

After your beauty dries completely you will need to age that baby up. This is always my favorite part of the process. I just used a stain that I had around my house.

Now the only problem you may have is deciding where to put your art!


You know we have to move it around the house a time or two...you know, playing house!

And just so you leave here with a giggle. This is me trying to be all cool and stuff...showing you my before hair picture..

Yesterday I had them take out my boo boo that I did back in May. I decided to brighten up myself and go a bit lighter for the first time in my life. No after pictures here just yet. I will have to go back a few more times because it is an on going process with this dark hair. Who knows ...you may just catch me off guard and get a sneak peek of the "in between" look. Husband and kids like it and allowed me to stay the night in the house so I guess all is well....now go girls. Inspire someone today. Even if it's just a smile~

  9. You are so unbelievably CREATIVE and ISPIRING! I just wish I had a wall big enough in my house to do something like this...but it gives me an idea to just take a one letter, or a few and scale it down a bit! Oh, I can't wait! Thank you for the tutorial. Oh, and also, I'm now on the hunt for a shutter!

    Oh Susie - I would love to see your hair! My hair is also very dark and I use a rinse to cover those pesky grays!!! But, the last few months I've been adding a few highlights hoping it will help the grays blend in and also to keep me from ending up with that *too old for that dark* hair look. heehee!!

    Are you highlighting or lightening your color all over?

    LOVE the number/letter pic - great job!!

    That picture "tickles my fancy" too so I think I'm going to have to paint one. Thanks for all the excellent directions.

    Can't wait to see your hair.

  17. Susie, honest to goodness, when I saw that in the Pottery Barn catalog I just knew you would make one!! Awesome job. I love it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. WOW!!! I think it's so awesome that you took something that they spit out on a line, and made it your own. It's fabulous!!! :) Great work, Susie. I am having so much fun getting to know you through your blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. wow, that is amazing! you did a fantastic job. love it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are AMAZING! What a cute idea. I don't know if I have the patience for that or not. I will pass the idea on to my daughter - she is the one with the painting talent. Have a super day and thanks as always for sharing.

  21. That is so cool. You've inspired me today!
    Thanks again.

    Oh, and thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  22. WOW It looks like a lot of work but it turned out fantastic. What a great one of a kind for your home, or did you make one for sis too? I have a feeling you'll be making another.

    Now, what about those yard sticks?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh I LOVE this! not sure if I'd have the patience to do it, but it sure would look good in my new office I'm working on!! ....hmmmmm, may have to give it a try- what size board did you use?

    ~TidyMom

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love it! What a great idea and yours looks beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Susie,
    I love your board! Must have taken you hours to paint all those circles and letters in. Wish summer wasn't drawing to a close cause I might have to try it myself.....

    Happy Thursday!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well now yours looks like you could have easily paid $300 for it!! Great job, there was a lot of work involved. Thanks for sharing the step by step!

  27. WOW!!! I love this! I have to decorate the town's middle school's lunch room and need some art. Although, how could I EVER get rid of something so cool? Thank you for the step by step instructions. And, you have a cute personality that made it even funner!

    Cute mirror pics, too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love it! I "dog-eared" that page in the PB catalog, too. I was actually thinking of decopauging printouts of a typewriter key font (http://www.typadelic.com/typekeys.html) onto a canvas and then staining it...but I think I like your version better! What kind of board did you use? Thanks for sharing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh susie! that looks great! it is so perfect! you are talented my friend! i needed a smile today! thanks! julie

  31. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING... Did I ever mention my favorite thing {well one of them} is TYPOGRAPHY?? I am so making this!! What size piece of wood did you use?? Thanks for doing a tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  32. FaNtasTisc JoB! Don't you love old looking stuff that doesn't have to be perfect. Vintage Eclectic has to be the best decorating style around. I have an entire folder of fancy/expensive magazine pages tha I'll copy one day (when I move to a huge house that had enought space for all the ideas in my head).

    Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Absolutely love it!! You did an amazing job on this!

  37. Susie what a fabulous project! I would have looked at that in PB and said wow I'd love to have that, and that would have been the end. But girl you are so talented and said "I can do this". Thank you for showing us how!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Now THAT is neat! Very generous of you to share how you did it! Love your blog! Karen

    ReplyDelete
  39. I JUST saw this in my PB catalog and was wanting to make it. Thank you so so so much for the wonderful tutorial!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's fantastic! I love your very professional tools, too. ;) My mind immediately jumped to a twist- a "word search" type thing with your family name, or homey-type words hidden among the jumbled letters.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Girl, you ROCK! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, Susie! This is absolutely divine!!! I am in love with it, and I love that you gave a tutorial! It's brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dang Girl! You really did an amazing replica of the PB version. Shoot, I don't know if I'm talented enough to make it myself though - but you sure did provide a kick butt tutorial. I don't know if I even dare to try.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh ma gosh, that is one awesome piece of artwork! I love the graphicness (is that a word??) of it. Gosh, it's gorgeous! I have about 200 spots in my home that would love to be decorated with that baby. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh yeah one more question:
    What font did you use??

    ReplyDelete
  46. You did an AMAZING job on that art piece! You are so creative.

    That was so sweet of you to share how you made it.

    Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Awesome job! Very creative, too! I have some copy-cat projects in the works myself...just really slow to get them finished! It takes time, doesn't it?! You have been an inspiration to me!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Susie, you make it look so simple! Thanks for the tutorial...I get catalogs like PB and Ballard and Wisteria just for the inspiration!

    And I can't wait to see the "afters." : )

    ReplyDelete

  60. Susie, you have outdone yourself on this one. And I love it! What a great project. You made it look workable and actually easy. I love wood projects but don't attempt them because I feel nervous about trying something I don't know much about. But this I have got to try. Thank you. My little poopsie is leaving in 6 days....I was glad to read that your son is nearby. I'm glad for that.

  71. You may never have a chance to read this comment; you're getting so many on this post. But you should be getting this many! This is awesome! I cannot believe you did this. I am SO BAD at painting little things that I never would have thought to try this. But it's so wonderful. . . maybe I should give it a go! Oh, I love it. I'll say it again--it's so wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  115. BRILLIANT-I have been looking at that too. I have an idea to make one step easier.
    Once you draw the circles on, couldn't you print off all your font on sticker paper and put all the stickers down, then paint the circles black and when drt pull up the stickers, then do the thermos lid, stain and be done. Just my crazy thoughts.
    I hope you will post this on next weeks Knock Off Knock Out party.

  117. I love browsing the PB catalog, but I never buy anything. It has such great ideas, but the prices amaze me. Thank you for sharing how you made this picture, for much less.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I don't understand how you got the letters onto the black circles. You printed out the letters, laid the on the black circle, traced the outline, and it made an indention on the wood that then you could follow as you painted the letters white?

    ReplyDelete
  119. love it! I'll be making one very soon!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I just tripped over your blog and am I glad I did... I will be hanging on this link let me tell you... thank you so much for sharing your inspiration... and your tutorial was excellent... fantastic job... I love it.

  140. I absolutely LOVE this- and totally plan on copying you, if that's OK. I have this huge dead space in the living room- way up high. It's a recession the wall and other than collecting dust, it has no purpose in our home- until now. Planning on making this one HUGE. not sure when I"ll get it done, but still..
    Thank you so much for the inspiration girl!! You rock!!
