Walkin' on Sunshine


Riley and I love to listen to music and dance during the day.  We also love the 80s chanel.  It's all we listen to.  A few months ago we started hearing I'm walking on sunshine all.the.time.  It became one of our favorites!  Since I am re-doing our living room (still)  I decided to make a wooden sign for our wall. 

Lucky for me my neighbors had a pile of wood to burn, and I wasn't afraid to ask to go through it.  HA!  Here is what I got...

I'm sure they thought I was crazy for wanting the wood that used to be a bench that went around one of their trees.  But I didn't care.  :) 

After a lot of sanding...a lot.  I cut some of the pieces into different lengths and put them together by attaching two boards along the width of the back.  One up top, and one at the bottom.  I painted it a bright blue, and with the help of my sisters good tracing skills had the letters drawn on to paint.  
I love it, and I smile every time I see it. 

I like to party over here.
