“Hello Sunshine” by Life as a Thrifter!”

Surely you all have been sitting on the edge of your seats dying to know what I did with my pallet canvas…??? :)
Well, let me just start off by saying, Michael, YOU inspired me!
If you haven’t seen his ‘from wood to wall‘ post, then you should. TO DIE FOR. Really and truly everything he’s done is…but it was that project that made me get my paint brush out.
Here’s what I did:
Step 1: Freehand your image…in this case, a sun. (I wanted it to look folkart-esk, so I didn’t worry much about perfectly, straight lines.)

Step 2: Get out all your left over paints…mix them around…and create various shades.

Step 3: Paint, paint, paint.

Step 4: Stencil on your outline…if words are what you want.
For a more detailed description on this, click here.

Step 5: Paint and sand.

It sits waiting to be hung on the porch…as the porch has become my latest project…

    Love it! I was waiting for the word sunshine….but then I realized it doesn’t need it because it says “hello” and it’s sunshine. How clever! :) It’s adorable!

    So creative and adorable. I love this. I have called my daughter sunshine since she was born. Is this something you sell?
