I live by the beach after all! Sandy toes and salty kisses are just a part of beach living.
I wanted to have some fun beach art when you first walk into my new home. I used the leftover wood from my desk to create this art piece.
I was really inspired by these painting:
I talk more about this painting in my Painted Wood Art post.
And this one which brought me so much joy! You can read more about it in my last segment of 5 Weekend DIYs.
I started off with the sun:
Pretty simple. I just used 2 different shades of yellow.
I then wanted it to look a little more rustic:
I used my Walnut Stain and an old t-shirt to allow the imperfections of the wood to come through.
I then used a pastel to outline my lettering. I knew I didn’t want it to be perfect. So this was the end result:
I used white paint for the letters and silver paint pen for some of the outline.
It’s leaning up at the first landing of our stair case. I am holding off on showing how it looks with the full room because we still need to put some love into it.
Imperfections are perfect in my eyes
