Le Bain: Powder Room Sign Redo

Here's a quick little project I tackled over the weekend.

I had a little wooden sign that was cute, but just didn't have a place in my new home.  I painted it Annie Sloan's Old White and then attempted to use my super-awesome (sarcasm!) freehand to write Le Bain (the bath). 
Don't judge my poor excuse for a drop cloth, nor my choice of dog food. I'm on a budget people! ;)

I then traced the letters with Glidden's Deepest Aqua.  I got a 2 oz. paint tester at Walmart for less than $3!  When it was dry I used clear wax to set the paint.  I finished off my little sign with a fabric rosette made from the same fabric as the curtains and voila:

As much as I like my new sign, it confirms how badly I could use a Silhouette!  This is definitely another project in the "it doesn't have to be perfect..." book.
