First, I printed out the phrase as a guide for painting the text.
I constructed scrap pieces of wood and stained them dark java.
Then I taped off the lines so they were straight and began hand painting the words, constantly referencing the print outs taped to the wall.
I finished the letters that went below the tape after removing the tape. I also added a little heart with their initials for a special touch.
I love how it turned out! And my friend loved it, too.
Happy Mawwage, Tracy and Kevin!
