Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.
I still absolutely love my the original subway sign I have hanging in my dining room but I'm not usually a big fan of the DIY kind. For me, the coolness quotient goes down when they weren't actually used in an old timely subway back in the day. All that said, there is a time and a place for everything and this is totally it.
The talent behind Lindauer Designs whipped this one up for sale and also kindly shared how she did it. I especially like how she took the idea and then altered it slightly to suit her purpose. She did a great job keeping the font sizes and layout balanced without being boring. Bravo.
I'm loving it.
I notice she used Annie Sloan chalk paint. It seems to be all the rage now but no one can seem to tell me why its worth so much more than regular latex paint so I've never given it a go. Im really digging the look of this treatment so I might just have to try this fancy paint out for myself.
Check out Lindauer Designs for all the details on this project.
postscript: *When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!
**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!
