I LOVE summer! Love having the kiddos out of school… adore the beach… love the easier schedule… love it all. A few week’s ago while browsing one of my favorite catalogs, Pottery Barn… love them ~ I saw some super cute beach signs & decided to create my own inspired signs.
I picked a few of our favorite beaches… Huntington Beach, Coronado Island and Newport Beach…. all local So. Cal. beaches we love spending time at.
I put these cuties in my oldest daughter’s beach bedroom.
I think they look perfect hanging on her ombre walls.
I picked up some wood from Lowes… they were already cut this size (2ft x 5”)
I gave the outer edges a coat of white paint (no need to paint the whole surface).
Then I painted the green center. I just free handed this, no need to measure or tape… this is easy going beach livin’.
For the wording I printed out the words and traced on top with a pencil. The wood was soft so I was able to see the imprint.
I decided to make it easy on myself and just used a sharpie for the lettering.
SO much easier than painting that size font.
I finished off by adding the additional white border in the green with a chalk paint marker and then roughed them up a bit with a sanding block.
I love how they turned out & more importantly “Blonde” loves them too.
Thanks for stopping by friends! You can check see the Pottery Barn beach signs that inspired me here.
The cute floral bedding was found at HomeGoods.© Copyright 2013 Maryann @ Domestically Speaking, All rights Reserved. Written For: Domestically Speaking
