Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday #17, A Treasured Project from Hometalk at Lucketts

I attended the Hometalk Meetup at the Lucketts Spring Market this year.

It was so great to meet so many wonderful fellow bloggers and Miriam from Hometalk.

Donna, from Funky Junk was demonstrating many DIY techniques..

I did one of these techniques with her..painted an old board using a stencil..to make a sign.


Here is the sign that I stenciled…:)


Now I stayed away from the projects that required the use of power tools!!

Donna is such a pro.


This is the sign..waiting for the paint to dry!


I added two large iron dogwood knobs to the sign that I purchased from Black Dog Salvage

…..well, actually my hubby drilled the holes and placed them on the sign for me!!


I dry brushed them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

Added a couple of Longaberger baskets…




I can honestly tell you that this room was rather dark when I was taking pictures…

…..so had to make major adjustments with the camera.


I felt this sign was so fitting for this room…filled with many vintage items.


So I thank you Donna and Miriam for allowing me to make this fabulous sign….

…..as it is Ever So Pretty…and Donna is Ever So Clever.

I hope you all had a safe and fun 4th of July holiday and I wish you a most wonderful weekend!!!
