So many of you had asked how I made my scripture subway art, and my apologizes for taking forever to tell you. I actually used this wonderful tutorial as an inspiration and kind of tweaked a few thing here and there.
I'm not super handy with tools and wood so I used just a simple piece of medium density fiberboard...or faux wood. It's a little cheaper (about $9) and the end result turned out just fine. I had it cut down at Home Depot for free then came home and primed it.
I loved her idea for creating the stenciling, but unfortunately it is so humid here I had a really huge problem with getting the letters to stick. Next time all though it'd be a little more time consuming I might trace and hand paint. Also, I think it would look super cute to get some stencils like these for a different look I used a beige/gray spray paint for the top coat, then because mine looked funky (not a good funky) once I peeled the letters back I spent a good time touching up each letter. Then to give it a more distressed look and hide the imperfections the humidity caused I pulled out my sander and roughed it up. Finally, I went back and brushed on and then wipped off my favorite glaze Ralph Lauren Tea-Stained to finish it off.
If I missed something don't hesitate to ask.
