Gefflin DIY’ed (DIY’d?) most of her & Sean’s wedding decor by herself (very efficiently too!), and asked me to hand letter a personalized wooden ‘Welcome’ sign. I’d never done that previously but it ended up being not so difficult.
The more difficult part was balancing painting with petting Mochi, furbaby to Mark and Hannah, permanent resident of Gefflin’s house and heart, and personal assistant for me on this project.
Here are the supplies:
Piece of wood
White acrylic paint
*Cute cat is optional but strongly recommended.
Some things to keep in mind: Pencil in everything beforehand. I should’ve left more white space for ‘Sean & Gefflin’ on the 2nd line but was too eager to start painting the ‘Welcome’ part. Also, not sure if this is solvable but the white paint required 3-4 coats to get it pretty opaque, aka 3-4x longer than anticipated.
And here’s the happy couple under the sign. Check out Yang’s blog for more awesome shots from the day, which hilariously involved the two Nathans showing up after the bride walked down the aisle, Edward & Lina showing up halfway through the vows, and Mark & Hannah showing up after the ceremony.
