Summer Fever

Once January hits, it is not long before spring summer fever kicks in and all I can think about is sitting on a warm beach.  So while I am stuck in this crisp, 10 degree weather…let me take you to my little beach retreat…in my kids' bathroom.  It is a work in progress so I’ll give you a little peek.   

I loved making my daughter’s clubhouse signs so I thought that something similar would be fun for the kiddie bathroom.  We love summertime and the beach so it was easy to go with a beachy theme for their space.  

The boards measure about 5.5 inches x 2 feet and they are lightweight.   First, I coated them with a flat, off-white paint, freehanded the lettering with a pencil and then painted. I painted the edges with a chocolate brown and then used a dry brush method to create a distressed look on top.  

Sailboat tutorial coming soon. :)

Back to reality...time for some hot chocolate. ;)
