I was recently commissioned to paint letters for a nice lady named Nancy. Her son Evan was born around the fourth of July and she wanted something that would reflect his patriotic birthday. However, she didn’t want the colors to be super bright and preferred more of a rustic look. Here is what I came up with:
It’s hard to tell from photos, but each letter has a bit of gold paint. The sides were painted dark brown which gives it the appearance of stained wood.
I enjoy working on these letters because they are an easy project to pick up and put down again. People seem to really love having personalized handmade items for their kids’ rooms. I’ve done a lot of letters for babies recently too. If you have kids or know someone having a baby it’s a great gift to get them. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested! I’m on a roll here.
