I grabbed my photo album to get all the info (& of course I got sidetracked for about 30 minutes flipping through the pages). Hotel de Suez. A magical place (at least to us it is). Absolutely PERFECT for my little sign! I painted the wood board white and got right to work.
(that's me in the bottom left corner holding some ice cream that we got from a cart).
The hubby grew a beard while we were traveling so he didn't have to worry about shaver adapters, etc. Ha ha, classic).
I printed out some letters using my trusty Cricut (love this thing).
It would have looked cool if I mod podged the paper letters on, but I decided to paint them to give it a more authentic look.
Here is the sign before I took it outside and distressed the heck out of it. I was a bit nervous at first, but I just went for it and I'm happy I did.
I rubbed some stain over the whole thing and wiped it off with a rag (just so the wood spots weren't so light). Subtle, but antique-ish looking.
Here's the view from my bed. I get to see it every morning when I wake up and it triggers such happy memories. What a way to start each day, huh!?
