I got another one of my summer goals done! I replaced the vase and sticks that I was using to help cover up the breaker box with a painting I did; it's actually a quote I saw on Pinterest a while back that I liked.
So here's the dresser top and breaker box before:
I started with a blank canvas and painted it purple.
Then I typed the quote up on the computer until I had it formatted like I wanted, so I would have something to look at as I wrote it out. I'm pretty good at looking at different fonts and free handing them, but I don't trust myself enough to do it with paint on the first try, so I penciled it first and then copied it with a paint marker.
It didn't turn out as good as I had hoped, because the letters and words aren't evenly spaced. I had thought about printing the design on a transparency and using an overhead projector to copy it but decided against it, and learned my lesson. Oh well, I definitely like it more than the vase and sticks!
