How was your Memorial Day weekend?
I got this plaque thing like 5 years ago at Home Goods. At the time I thought it was cool, but then after I got home and hung it up I realized the error of my ways. Being too lazy to return it, I kept it in the basement, figuring at some future point it might come in handy.
Fast forward to earlier this month when I had an idea for what I could get/make for my mom for Mother's Day and her birthday (which always happen to fall around the same few days...poor Mom). She has always admired this sign that I have hanging above one of my kitchen doors.
It's of the town where I grew up, but having recently moved away for good (sniff, sniff), my mom won't really have a chance to buy her own from one of the shops there. So I thought I'd make her something similar...and immediately remembered that weird tea thing I had in the basement. It was the perfect size to serve as a base for my new Doylestown sign!
I'll post more later on how I got to this point (click here for the tutorial), but for now, here's the finished product. (I snapped these pics really quick before I wrapped it up to give to Mom - she loved it!) This was a really fun project, I think I'll be doing more of these in the future. I actually bought 2 ugly tea plaques at Home Goods that day (what was I thinking?), so we'll see if mom gets another sign or I make one for myself:)
