"Good and Perfect Gift" Sign
Welcome to The Little Brown House!
I am updating this post to share again, and wanted to mention
that the scripture I used for the sign is one of my favorites -
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down
from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not
change like shifting shadows.”
Now on to the project!
Today I want to show you how I completed my
in my family room – hope you like it!
A month or so ago, I put up a row of pictures of our grandchildren on our Family Room wall.
Aren’t they seriously the most gorgeous grandchildren on earth? I am being
totally impartial here – just stating the truth..
Anyway – I decided I needed something on the wall above the pictures.
One of my favorite blogs, Thrifty Decor Chick , who I want to be when I grow up
(grow up in blog years, in real years I am much older than her!)
has a photo arrangement on her stairway wall that I just love.
Whew – how was that for a run on sentence!
She has a vinyl saying on the wall along with the pictures – it says “The best things in life
aren’t things.” So of course I wanted a saying above my pictures, I decided to
use “Every good and perfect gift is from above”, which is one of my
favorite scriptures from James.
And my grandkids are one of my favorite gifts! Perfect!
I started out with another one of those cabinet doors that
I love so much from our Habitat For Humanity outlet store.
You may remember my first craft with one of these – my
Family Name Signs I made for Christmas
You can check out how I made them Here.
Anyway – back to our story!
This door needed a little help, so my husband filled in
some dents with putty, and I sanded them down.
Then I painted it with some black satin latex. I wanted
just a tiny bit of sheen to it..
Once again I ordered my vinyl from my friend Shelly
at Say Anything Expressions. And once again she came
through for me! This order was only $13.50 for the vinyl
plus shipping. Fabulous!! And it came so quickly too!
Here is how it looks when you get it -
To start out, I laid out the paper to get an idea of placement
Then I pulled out my adorable pink measuring tape that
my Mother-in-law got me! I measured to make sure I
was placing it evenly.
You peel off the 1st backing paper – then lay the vinyl face down on the board.
I use a small spatula (cause I am such a tool pro) to press
the vinyl down as I am pulling off the final backing and placing
the words on the board.
Finished the top – now on to the bottom!
After I got the whole thing done – I decided it looked a little blank
in the center – so I ordered an embellishment from Shelly to put there.
So here it is completed and on the wall –
I have decided I seriously heart vinyl! It makes such an inexpensive and
personalized impact! I don’t know why it took so long to get
invented! We had a man on the moon 40 years ago!!
(As a side note – I am thinking about joining Exclamation Points Anonymous..)
Any way – tell me what you think!
About my gandkids being the most
adorable children on the face of the earth I mean….
And thanks for stopping by The Little Brown House, where you can always
