Altered DT wood plaques

5.13.13 mancave ETSY 012Got these plaques a couple of years ago.  Actually liked these ‘as is’, but still intended to re-do them.

5.13.13 mancave ETSY 013It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but the center part where the writing was is a separate and raised piece; so it was easy to sand all of that off with an orbital sander.

P1070284The hardest part of this do-over was matching the paint to the background.  First I painted the center black, then Ivory.  While it’s not an exact match to the border, but distressing the center and letting some black show through; you don’t really notice the slight color difference.

P1070285I think they tuned out pretty darn good!!

P1070289I left the original hanger on the back and just added another to hang the horizontally.

P1070288NOW I’m kinda wishin’ I had MORE of the to re-do!!
