Week 4: Reflect & Evolve // Day 27: Enjoy Stencil
In that very messy before photo, hidden besides empty cans of paint and a paint-sprayer, sat a piece of wood that looked like is should go straight to the trash but that I actually had a plan for.
I’d found it one day when I was walking Halo. It’s probably a piece of a bench, and it struck me that you could think of it as the urban equivalent of driftwood. Sure, it may not be as romantic and not quite as pretty, but I saw potential.
I got home late last night from California and it felt satisfying to channel my sadness over missing my sister and her family into a quick creative project today. I don’t miss them any less now, but I do feel cheered up a bit by having created something.
I thought the piece of wood was the perfect thing to create a sign with that would remind people walking into our home to enjoy themselves.
I mixed a bit of the leftover blue paint from painting the cabinet with white in different quantities and painted the letters with the help of a stencil I’d made.
