Recycled Drawer Turned Word Sign!

Remember that dresser that Dave made into a bookshelf?
Well, he saved the front of the drawers for me to make signs out of.
This is step 1:
find an old dresser, take the front part of the drawers off and
recycle into a craft! Next step:
Rip your favorite scrapbook paper into two pieces
and Mod Podge on the front of the drawers.
Next, I cut out letters in darker colors and
pasted it to a lighter shade of paper.
This helped it stand out.
Then, I Mod Podged the letters to the sign.
Then, I Mod Podged the entire front of the sign
to make a coating.
I have Matte Mod Podge,
so it is a flat finish,
but still looks smooth and secure.
All done!

I hung the sign in our walkway
that leads to our front door.
It desperately needed a little somethin'
to show our guests
that they are always



WELCOME!
