Guest Room Art

I needed one last piece in the corner where my new mini bookshelf went in the guest room to kind of tie it all together and balance the long skinny shelf.   I made a sign which reads “The ornament of a house is the guests who frequent it.”   It is a quote I tweaked a little (changed friends to guests) from Ralph Waldo Emerson and I made it into a free guest room art 8” x10” printable in several colors for you (see below).

Pin It

Supplies:

Silhouette machine

vinyl

transfer paper

Krylon Spray paint in Coral Isle

primer

stick pin

2 screws and some wire to create a hangar on the back

1. I cut a board to the size I wanted and then I put two coats of primer on it.

2. I used 2 Peas Tubby and Channel for my fonts and then designed the layout in my Silhouette studio program.

3. I cut it out with my Silhouette SD onto contact paper and used transfer paper to align my letters onto my cut MDF board.

5. Then I sprayed a light coat of primer over my letters just so that I would get less bleed when I went to spray the coral spray paint on it.

6. Once dry I sprayed the Coral Isle spray paint over that giving it two light coats a couple of minutes apart.

7. Once that was dry I took a stick pin and slowly peeled my vinyl away to reveal the white primer underneath.

Then I attached wire and 2 screws on the back to create and hangar and hung it on the wall.

    Great idea for a guest room, Beckie! I used the same quote for a Christmas party theme once! Thanks for the printable. :)
