After posting about our favorite BBQ place yesterday, we decided to go down to McKinney to have a late lunch there.
While in McKinney, I took the opportunity to go to some of my favorite shops and get some inspiration. This Ho, Ho, Ho sign caught my eye.
The price was ridiculous, especially because it would be so easy to make! If you can't stencil or paint the words on, you could just buy some big letters and attach them like they did on the sign below.
This is the only picture I took of this NOEL sign. I'm not sure if it's blurry or if the stack of them makes it look that way. But the concept is easy enough.
If you have an old cabinet door stashed in your garage, just paint it white with the raised part black and add some painted wooden letters from Hobby Lobby, Walmart or Michael's, etc.
I think this concept would make cute tree ornaments too if you can find (or make) a smaller wooden board or plaque and smaller letters.
I'm putting those two projects on my 'Fixing To Do' list for sure. Right after I finish this table for our dining room...
If you're a wood purist, don't get in a tizzy. This table is not made of very good wood. It's kind of a pressed wood with a shiny layer on the top, like on this table leg below. Luckily, chalk paint will stick to anything.
I'm using Amy Howard's One-Step paint for this project. I mixed two of her whitish colors together to come up with this creamy white one.
Come back soon if you're interested in how it turns out. Our dining room was a sitting room, but I sold the couch and pulled this table out of storage in accordance with the "Use It Or Lose It" policy we've recently adopted.
We didn't ever sit in the "sitting" room, so the couch had to go to make room for the table and chairs. The theory is to reduce our possessions by 50% by keeping what we use, and love, and letting the rest find a good loving home of its own.
Thanks for dropping by!
