More wood plaques-

These are just the same phrases I cut out of Cricut vinyl as the last 2 plaques- only I put them on 5 3/4 inch by 5 3/4 inch wood squares I cut from a board I bought from Home Depot- (love my miter saw!!!).. Anyhow, one I crackled, one I didn't- I painted the dark brown base and light aqua top coat and distressed. I used my drill to make holes to make a hanger with ribbon to match. These are for my best buddy, she liked the cream and brown ones, and I mentioned the light aqua color and she said "OOH". I may make more for others, depends on what people like. Anyhow, you can see the difference in appearance for the same colors of paint when using crackling versus just distressing (sanding the edges) and no crackling. I'm really loving that light aqua color... :)


  1. These look awesome!! My mother in law is so great at stuff like this.. I on the other hand could use some practice :)
