I’m your cousin. I don’t know you but I love you. I dreamed about you before we knew you were coming and I know your special and amazing. I grew up with your grandma Jamie and even though you don’t know him your great grandfather Gary Soileau. He was an amazing man. His dad and my dad traveled all over the United States with Jamie and Jason and me. So I already know your amazing because I know where you come from. Here are my steps in making your sign. It took much longer than I wanted because I had to end up planning a wedding around the time I got started.
* I used a recycled pallet for this project and just cut right through the nails.
Pain any color you want. I used pink.
Next I printed out the letters for “Emma” centered them on the board and traced them really hard with a capped sharpie so it made and indention in the wood of the letters
Then I removed the paper letters and filled them in with a black paint pen.
I used a little sandpaper and dulled it out in places by rubbing on it lightly. The next step took the longest.
Picking out the door pulls I wanted. I wanted to put drawer pulls on it so they could hang clothes. I ended up getting some from hobby lobby that I though went pretty well but the selection was a little overwhelming and made or hard to decide. Since they are supposed to be drawer pulls you will have to drill a hole where you want them, but after that you just thread a screw on the back to make it secure.
