Home Inspiration Week-Day 5

**For the Scrappy Mom's Stamps sneak peek CLICK HERE or scroll down. Thanks! **

Hi again! Well today is the last day of my Home Inspiration week! So sad..it's been so fun sharing all these ideas that you can do with EAD vinyl! I hope you have been inspired and hopefully you can get your hands on some for your home very soon! :)

For my last project of the week, I'm sharing a DIY definition sign that looks like it's wroth way more than it costed! lol..I  think this is my favorite project so far this week..I think you will like it too! :)

Isn't this great? I love the way it turned out!

Here's how I made it...
grab you supplies wood-((the white board is technically a shelf that I found at Home Depot -5 bucks and I didn't have to paint it!)), sander, ditress ink, vinyl..
First I sanded the edges a bit, then rubbed some distress ink to darken ((I probably would have done this step after the vinyl was on so the ink won't smug..I guess I was just in a hurry and did it first..oh well no biggie..))
Then apply vinyl (it went on like butter!)...
To finish the look I made some rolled fabric and burlap flowers, I've seen a few tutorials in blogland, but I learned from HEREThey are super easy peasy to make but it's really hard trying to snap pics in the middle with the hot glue gun ((messy! and watch out for the glue..it's HOT! lol..))..I used some half off coupons for the fabric and burlap at JoAnns so they were super cheap for a yard and I still have pleanty left to play with!

The finished look...
I hope you like it! 

For my project I used the EAD-Home Definition
