Noel Pottery Barn Knockoff Sign


Ok, yeah it took a blizzard to finally get me to start a blog.  Why blog you ask?  (As if anyone will actually read this.) Well, I make a lot of crap, observe a lot of unusual things, and get very crafty at times and I was told by my therapist felt the need to share it with others.  Here is some crap I made recently.  I saw that everyone and their dog on blog land made one of these, so I decided to jump on board.  I spent about $8.00 on this and Pottery Barn sold something similar for $150.00.  Full disclosure; theirs is MUCH better quality.  However, if you're not much of a quality freak this version will do nicely.  What can I say?  I have low standards.  Actually, I'm broke.

First I got some wood type letters from the craft store and arranged them like the picture in the Pottery Barn catalogue. 




I turned them over and went crazy with the staple gun everywhere the letters touched.  After the staple gun gave out, I took my trusty can of oil rubbed bronze and went to town on it. 



Here's the final product.  Ta da!  I got yelled at by my husband because I didn't wait for the paint to dry completely before putting it against the wall.  Yup you guessed it; paint on the wall.  I'm a happy camper!!!
