I wanted a nice , quick and charming banner for my table at the craft fair and after a little brainstorm and almost no elbow grease I have one and I love the result.
I bought wooden letters at Michael's and first spray painted them red.I used milk paint that I have purchased a while ago at the thrift store and never used.
Mixed both for a muted greeny blue
Some light sanding, gel stain, wiping and I had this result:
Shabby and old looking, I like it!
I used E-600 glue to attach tem to a piece of drift wood that I already had and It gave it an even more primitive and "nature" look, juts as I wanted!
