So as promised last week in my post The Painted Trunk here is how I made the monogrammed door plaque.
1 old piece of cheap artwork the kind printed on MDF (canvas would work too this is what I had laying around the house)
Primer or flat white or gray paint
Yellow latex paint satin finish
Monogram Printable (replace the sample letters with your initials, print, and cut out)
Matte Finish Mod Podge
Paint over the artwork with the your primer (I am out of primer I used some flat gray paint)
The goal here is to keep the original image from bleeding through on the final color.
Once that is dry paint the whole thing with your yellow paint. I use Valspar’s Delightful Moon from Lowes, it comes in a sample size for $3.
Now take the Monogram Printable before the paint dries place it in center and gently smooth it out. This way you don’t have to wait for the paint to dry again.
*If you are scared to do it on the wet paint, you can wait until the paint dries and use the Mod Podge to glue it down. To do this once the paint has dried simply brush the Mod Podge over the paint and place the Monogram in the center, smooth out any bubbles.
Either way you do it once it’s completely dry cover the whole thing (paper and paint) with the Mod Podge, let dry completely.
