{You Are My Pot of Gold} Board

I hope you all had an AMAZING weekend! I had an awesome one. Friday night my little Kaitlyn and I had a Mommy Daughter night and went and got our nails done! It was so fun! It was her first time getting them done in a Salon.

Then on Saturday I chopped my hair off and put some blond hightlights in it! I LOVE it!!! I was so ready for a change!
**I am so sorry about the quality of my pictures. Something is going on and I am not sure if its blogger or my computer. When I look at them in my picture browser they are fine, but when I upload them they have gone funny. I am not sure why, but my hubby is going to look at it!

That's enough about my weekend. Let's get to todays fun sign!!

I was on Pinterest early last week and saw a cute saying for St. Patrick's Day. It says, "You are my pot of Gold." Someone had done a cute little sign with that on it. I so wanted to make something with this saying, I totally fell in love with it!

So this is what I came up with:

I took a board that I had laying around that is 6"x25 1/2" and sanded all the edges so they were smooth.

I thought it would be fun to paint a rainbow of stipes on it since it goes with St. Patrick's Day so cute! I measured out the stripes and marked where they would be.

Then I took blue masking tape and put it on the marks I had to get a perfect line. 

Then I painted-I did 3 stripes at a time, doing every other one.
After these ones dried I put blue tape on again and did the other 3 stripes.


After all the paint dried I sanded around the whole board fixing any mistakes I made with the paint. Then I stained the whole board with  the color Early American.

Next, I cut out the saying "You Are My Pot of Gold" using the font Bosshole found HERE. I cut it out in black vinyl. Then I stuck it on the board.

Super Easy!! Here is what it looks like all done:




I am so excited about how it turned out!! I LOVE IT!!!
