i had a space to fill on my dining room wall.
remember this small vintage window? it was the perfect size.
i sanded it a little. taped the window off with painters tape and a paper grocery bag.
the window was a little too white for what i was going for. i love this heirloom white spray paint from Home Depot. it was the perfect color.
i had this idea to put a monogram in the middle. i have a friend kara that does that vinyl that you see everywhere. the stuff is amazing! i emailed her and she made me this really cute birdie monogram and i just LOVE it!
here is her website if you are interested.
have you ever added vinyl to anything before? it is SO easy.
first center it in the middle and tape the very top with removable tape.
use something with a straight edge like this scrapper or a credit card and press firmly all over your vinyl. this will make the vinyl stick to the top paper (the piece that looks like wax paper.)
lift your vinyl up and remove the paper on the bottom.
when it is removed place the vinyl back where it was centered. the tape will keep it nice and straight.
use your straight edge once again and rub the whole vinyl. this will make the actual vinyl stick to the surface you want it.
start with the corner and peal the wax paper off.
it is as easy as that! you can get vinyl at craft stores or order it from people like my friend kara.
