DIY Paint and Sticky Vinyl


I got my 'paint on' and accomplished this project that has been on
my to-do list for quite some time now. My punch wall is actually a thick 
piece of painted MDF with IKEA hardware, perfect for displaying my
wide assortment of punches that I use frequently. Since we move every
couple of years, I wanted it to be easy to start unpacking my office space
and the punches take up quite a bit of space if they are in drawers. Not to
mention, if you can't see them, you forget you have them! So I'm a 
huge cheerleader for using wall space in an office/studio.

I love the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Die Cut called "The Top Note", so free
handed the shape out in pencil after taping up where I wanted the create
vinyl saying to go. I painted two coats around the sides before filling
in the middle, waited for it to dry and then carefully placed the vinyl.

It's perfectly imperfect and I love the pop of green in my very white
studio space! A super quick and easy project to add a little smile 
to any room, you could also do this on a smaller piece of wood,
for ease of moving or hanging above a doorway, etc.
