Last week we showed the great success we had using cardboard letters to make a sign for Jordan’s dining room. You can read about it here. But before we tackled that project, we practiced with a little letter. We bought a cardboard “H”, which is Jordan and Mr. Spring’s last name initial and tried our technique on it first.
Being supervised by Gracie, I am applying the first coat, which is a black acrylic craft paint.
The second coat adds the WOW!!! factor. I applied pearl paint, which is also an acrylic craft paint.
Then to make it look really industrial, I added upholstery tacks that are in a zinc finish.
This letter has a completely different vibe from the dining room wall letters. I think Jordan is going to add it to the photo gallery that she is putting together for her stairway. We’ll keep you posted when it goes up.
