Paint: How to personalize any wooden object.
Any font, any size, you can paint it.
My most popular post by far, thank you to Pinterest, is the "P" is for Personalization post where I originally showed my how-to handpaint letters onto wood.
I thought the post deserved an updated version, with much better pictures, and fresh trendy paint colors to boot!
Here's how to personalize on wood objects:
1. For this project I used my wooden trug painted Glidden sunbaked orange.
Mask off a 2.5" wide band with painters tape:
2. Paint two coats Behr lake blue:
3. Print out letters, I used American Typewriter font size 175:
4. Center lettering on blue stripe.
Using a ballpoint pen trace outline of lettering. The pressure from the pen will create a slight indent in the wood.
Below you can see the indent left behind, you have successfully transferred the lettering onto the wood.
5. Now paint on and inside the indent:
6. Once complete, seal with clear acrylic spray gloss:
A professional look and finish for a fraction of the cost.
Now get all those boy toys and fill it up:
Or leave it empty.
Either way it's still pretty darn cute.
And a great basket type gift for Easter coming soon.
