Many moons ago,
the hubs and I were talking, late at night, as we occasionally do. This talking always ends with one or both of us falling asleep, mid sentence.
Oh, oh wait-- we need a visual again while I talk:
There we go. As always, I'm on the right. Now, as I was saying.
So, this was my turn to doze off, and I don't even know how we got to this conversation, but all I remember is being awoken to:
"And ya know, sometimes you just listen to the same music over and over and overandoverandover and it's kind of annoying. . . and. . . "
One of my eyes popped open in an instant, and I'm all,
"Did he just, for the first time in 13 years, confess that something I do is super obnoxious??"
I admit it. I love music, and when I love a song, I will listen to it 250,000 times in a row.
What does this have to do with today's project? Not a whole lot.
My great friend, Emily, had a birthday (so long ago I won't even say when it was because I'm so embarrassed. Nope. Make me.), and she told me she wanted a sign.
This sign will have her favorite quote from her favorite song. Great idea, right?
I mean, I've got two signs from my fave songs.
They're both from my favorite band, Blue October. (Obsess much?) And Emily just so happens to love Blue October as well. 'S part of why we get along so great. That, and we really liked New Kids back in the day.
Ya know? Let's listen to this song. Yes, let's.
This is a Blue October/Imogen Heap collaboration, so it's basically like a delicious treat combo of both salty and sweet.
(Even the hubs approves of this song being played over and over. It's his favorite.)
So! I got to work. Purchased a 3 foot piece of pine, and painted 'er white.
Took me about 7 coats of paint/primer/stainblocker to get rid of that sharpie, thank you very much Kenna. Probably would have been better off sanding it off.
Many thanks to my sister in law for cutting the vinyl for me. Again.
I gave this thing like 10 coats of black spray paint. Careful, light coats so as to prevent any bleed-through. I've had that happen a lot before, see.
Moment of truth:
Phew. See it all done?
Oh ma gosh, I really like it. I think I'll just keep it instead. Oh, I kidd. I'm not that crappy of a friend. But close.
