This might be a total fail, but I’m still trying to decide. It started when I found this image on Pinterest:
I’ve seen tons and tons of things just like this, but, for whatever reason, I really liked this one. Maybe it’s because I married an old guy, maybe it’s because I’m not so young anymore. I just liked it. So I decided it was time for a craft project.
I bought a big canvas, paint, stencils, scrapbooking paper and mod podge. I ended up having to cut the f*cking letters out with a razor blade. I chose a shade of purple for the background because purple is G’s favorite color. I know, I know. It’s a miracle some idiot married him.
I had a mild coronary when I had to start gluing the letters to the board because, while I want everything to be straight and perfect, I refuse to use a ruler or any sort of measuring device. I just eye-balled that dumb thing…and that’s why I’m not sure about how it turned out.
As you can see, it’s a bit jacked up. I’m living with it for the next week, though, to see if I can get over it.
I also parked this bad boy in front of it….
and I think it really helps!!
Aside from the spacing and straightness issues, it’s almost a little too nice for me. I mean, I have a coffee mug that says “I’d rather be anally raped”. This doesn’t really go with that.
