|Finished project. Please excuse the messy counter.|
My kitchen style is sort of a 50's farmhouse. It is a combination of bright 50's style and rustic farmhouse. I have touches of kitchy mixed in with industrial finishes, like galvanized metal.
|I had a little problem with the printer, but managed to get them all printed.|
To make the cute prints I used a scrapbook program on my computer. I found some clip art, and used some fun fonts to make these look like vintage images. I love using this program for so many projects. It has been a lifesaver for my kids class projects, and I even have used it for the signs we put on our vegetable stand. I had planned on printing these out at an office supply store, but I decided to try using my own printer. They actually turned out pretty true to color.
|The great board I found out by the barn. I hope my hubby didn't have a plan for it.|
I went out to the barn hoping to find a piece of wood that was a little rough looking, and wide enough to paste the prints to. I actually think I would like to try to find a wider board and do this again, but since the cost me almost nothing, I will live with it for now until I find the perfect board.
I brushed the board off with a stiff dry brush. I didn't do any deep cleaning or sanding of the board, just the dry brush to take off any bumpy debris.
|Craft glue, sponge brush, and putty knife were all I needed to stick the prints to the board.|
|Spread the glob of glue|
|Using the putty knife carefully press the print onto the board.|
