"K" is for King Cotton

Paint: King Cotton sign



A special request from Traci, she sent me this image:


And wanted it painted (32" x 24") in red on white to go in a room that "is bright teal...cottage - meets farmhouse!".




Here's how I made the sign:

1. Using 1/2" plywood cut to the requested size 32"w x 24"h,
primed and painted 2 coats Behr swiss coffee.

Sketch out the logo lightly in pencil, I folded the paper print out to make a grid:


2. Paint over the sketch with red acrylic:


3. Seal with clear spray acrylic and add two sawtooth hangers on back:


I think it's pretty close to the original:


Hope Traci likes it in her cottage meets farmhouse room.
