Bedroom Makeover Part 3 - Family Sign

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  Ours was a birthday filled weekend, with two kids birthday parties.  One was about an hour away with some friends and after the party we were able to head over to my sisters house to meet her new little man.  We also had my father in-law and mother in-law here throughout the week and weekend. Wow I am tired just thinking about it.  I finished my weekend up by going to watch the hunger games movie, as I didn't read the book I didn't really have any expectations but thought it was a good movie.  For those of you who have seen it didn't you find it to be a little too bouncy almost making you feel carsick. I hope the ones to follow are not filmed the same way.  

This weekend I was able to finish up this Family sign and get it up on the wall. 

I am sure it is no surprise that I love to make signs so how could I do a bedroom makeover with out one in there.

This bedroom project has taken much longer than I thought just because I am trying to find a few things to go in there that I haven't been able to find but I am in the home stretch so finished pictures are soon to come. 

I started with my 1x4 board that was painted black first and then white for the top coat, which was then sanded down. 

I used my vinyl cutter to create stencils 

I still have to add another picture into one of the frames an I might add one more frame on each side too.
