Family Rules signs and subway art abound on the internet. This idea is somewhat modified, but it is another example of working with what you have to create a look.
This sign was made using what I had: an old cork board, spray paint and letter stickers. First I spray painted the whole board white. Then I carefully spelled out the "rules" which is my translation of the 10 Commandments simplified, using stickers. I then spray painted everything black. After waiting a day for the paint to dry, I peeled off the stickers. There is some underspray, but I can live with that.
In our current house, this sign is a little bit hidden up on top of the computer cabinet in our living room. Can you find it?
It's a little more obvious in person, and it's a great reminder.
In our last home, the sign was more prominently hung above my sewing corner in our dining room.
In the house before that, it moved around a couple times, but finally found a home in collage wall in the hall.
This is Day 3 of my 31 Days of Art for Your Home series!
