Cute, wonderful Cody is Christa's little yorkie. When there's a lot going on in the house and she needs to confine him, she has a board that she puts across a doorway.
Cody can still see out, but he can't get over it.
It was just a plain board and she asked if I could paint something on it.
So, this is what I painted. I painted and distressed it in black. Then, I embossed the stencils and painted the stencils and Cody's name in metallic gold paint. The board is 4'x12", but it was important to remember that the doorway opening was around 32 inches wide. So, I needed to make sure the placement of the stencils was within that space. This painted board might seem unnecessary and you wonder why even paint it. Well, if you have an orange unfinished piece of wood in the middle of your beautifully furnished room, you understand.
And, embellish is what I do!!
On the other side of the board, I just painted it black, stenciled in metallic gold paint and added their initial. Also, I rubbed the metallic gold paint around the outer edges.
Their home is so beautiful and I thought I would paint this board real fancy for them.
Christa told me they LOVED the board and thought it was "awesome"!
That made me feel really good and so glad they were happy.
I was thinking that this board would make a really nice bench, too.
Or, the back of a bench or even a headboard.
Now, I'm thinking of lots of uses for this board and it was really easy to do.
Also, she asked me to paint the picture frame in a distressed black.
(It's just above the board.)
