This is a project I did with a really cool Etsy shop called Hobbie Horse Designs out of Texas (love). The woman who owns and operates it is very nice and PATIENT. Gosh, I change my mind so much. She responded promptly to my message about custom work and communicated thoroughly afterwards. She went the extra mile to make sure I got what I wanted. I wanted the word "DELISH" to put on my kitchen wall. I chose the word, size, font, and fabric (she sent me tons of swatches) and they did the rest.
I went with Storybook font on eight-inch letters. The six individual prints are vintage-y bird motifs of my choosing. This is how she comes up with the final product:
- paints the top of the letters white so that nothing will show through the fabric.
- decoupages the fabric onto the wood so "it will last forever."
- applies several coats of sealer to keep the letters from turning yellow.
* these can even be spot-cleaned if I happen to fling some marinara over there.
I like them a lot.
