Whale of a Good Time

~Wooden Sign~


Ok…I think you know how I like to personalize and monogram…making things significant to me, my family and our home. Recently I found this adorable wooden whale at HomeGoods.  I fell in love with the stripes and the colors are so “beachy”.

I knew it would be perfect in my son’s room at our beach house. But, I wanted to tweak it a little…

St. Petersburg, Florida has always been our favorite vacation spot and now we also call it our home away from home.

I love the use of longitude and latitude in coastal decor. It’s very nautical…at least I think so…

To create my “stencil,” I printed the words from Microsoft Word and used a ball point pen to trace the letters on to the wood. This causes a slight indention, so you can go back and paint within the lines. Really easy!

I love my new wooden whale sign and it adds the perfect touch to my son’s bedroom.

Tomorrow I’ll show you more pictures from his room.

Until then…have a Whale of a Good Time!

    I love everything about it, the shape, the colors, the lettering, the lat and long. Great project! Thanks for stopping by and linking up to Fluster Buster’s Creative Muster Party! Looking forward to seeing what you’re going to link up next week.
