subway scripture sign


I really wanted a large piece of something for the guest room and I love the subway art out there, but wanted to make it a little more us with one of my favorite scriptures.  So I grabbed a few cans of spray paint and a large piece of mdf and got to work.  It looked dead awful when it was done but thank goodness for the power of a sander and a can of glaze.  I sanded that thing until I was absolutely in love.  So for under $20 I got my large art that by the way never made it to the guest bedroom because I stole if for our master bedroom!

Love it!! We are in the process of buying a new house and I just know I could find a place for something like this. You should do a tutorial so we can all copy:)

I love the look of these signs! I really like that you went with a lighter color instead of the black you always see. It looks great!

getting on the bandwagon. Would love to see a tutorial of how you did it. We are moving into a new house soon and I would love to put something like this over our fireplace. The verse you chose is one of my faves.

this is a good project. It is hard to find modern scripture pieces and I'm thinking I may borrow your idea!
