Fun Quotes Decor to Make Yourself

It is easy to turn garage sale art into fun quote decor. Start with a print or a painting. Use vinyl letters to spell out the saying you want on it. They should be repositionable vinyl. I used acrylic paint and a sponge to dab the paint on the way you do for stencils. Pull up the letters while the paint is still wet. If you let it dry at all, the paint may want to peel away with the letters. When I got to the point you see in the second photo, I should pull off the first line of lettering. I have a whole uplifting wall going in the living room. As you can see there are 2 garage sale pieces waiting for treatment. My daughter wants to pick the quotes for those. The space next to "you are my sunshine" is for a sunburst mirror. I am on the look out for a deal on one of those. I would love to see yours if you do one. Post it on Facebook and show me there. The larger longer printed pieces were purchased as digital files on Etsy and printed at my local Office Depot as posters on foam board. The yellow one was also from Etsy and printed and framed by Office depot on canvas. The smaller one above the landscape is from Hobby Lobby.
