Today I am excited to share with you my favorite project yet.
I found this perfectly good piece of art at Goodwill for 3 bucks
and instantly knew I had to destroy it :)
Cute enough right?
I LOVE that it is metal and it has the scrolly things on the top and bottom.
But I am not into coffee or NY. I had other plans for this baby.
First things first I had to have the hubby rip the coffee cup part off.
I am not sure if you can tell but the coffee cup and the steam swirls are 3D.
But when we ripped the coffee cup part off it left bad dents in the metal.
I sanded using my electric sander and painted it several times.
It wasn't perfect but it was good enough!
Ok so now what?
After some thinking, I knew just what to do!
As you know, we live in Arkansas and are HUGE Razorback fan.
I wanted something to represent that and found a Facebook cover photo
(of all random things) that said "As for my and my household we will call the hogs."
I was so pleased with my last purchase from Burton Avenue.
She is the best and most helpful with custom orders so I placed another one with her.
She was gracious enough to send me several mock ups of my ideas
and we picked the perfect one.
I wanted the beginning to be nice and sweet and the ending to be strong.
I simply adhered the lettering and added a Razorback sticker from Dollar General.
My favorite project yet!!
