11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Newfoundland Tea Room on: April 27, 2011 07:19:55 AM
I made this distressed sign for my MIL for her tea room in Newfoundland. She lives in Ontario and goes to her home town of bonavista, Newfoundland every summer to open her tea room till fall.. So i thought it would be nice if she had something to reminder of it all year long.

Photos were taken with my cell phone since I cant find the cable for my camera. so not the best quality

I wanted it to resemble the sign she has hanging outside the building as much as possible but with my own twist on it

Flavoured blend Teas

Newfoundland Specialties

Thank you both!! I am really glad to hear that you like them. They are a lot of work mainly because I have to cut out my own stencils but I really enjoy doing them Smiley

I love this! What techniques did you use?

I simply dry brushed on a light pink color then waited for that to dry dry brushed  cinnamon brown over the pink and  once that was dry I arranged my letters and painted over them with a antique white and the sanded it once it was all dry. I think I am going to sand it a bit more before I add a matte sealer tho Smiley the are really easy and fun to do!

I hope this is in the right spot..it is a wall decoration but it is also a bridal shower gift so feel free to move it if needed Smiley

My cousin's fiancee is having her bridal shower this weekend and me being the procrastinator that I am rushed at the last minute to get this finished lol. the just moved into there own apartment and wanted some wall art so I made them a sign for after their wedding I thought it might look good with their wedding photos around it. I hope they like it I am kinda new at making signs this is only my second one the first was https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=377274.msg4452921#msg4452921.
