I’m not getting married. No one I know is getting married and yet….here we are.
Welcome to Cheltenham Road: Bridal Edition
I seriously don’t know where this came from but it popped into my head but it just seemed so fun and easy I kinda had to do it. Since weddings are all about family (the ones attending and the new one being created) I thought it would be cool to have the table numbers reflect and pay tribute to the family.
- Chalkboard Easels from Michaels
- Mod Podge Matte formula
- Folk Art Milk Paint: Churned Butter
- Copies of family photos
- Scrapbook paper
- A sharp craft knife
- (ignore the two stick on letters – I changed my mind)
- Folk Art Stencils (not pictured)
- Folk Art Chalk PaintP Rich Black(not pictured)
- Black Sharpie
The easels are in the craft-wood aisle at Michaels and they come in a couple of different sizes and are pretty affordable at $4.00 each.
After painting the easels with the Milk Paint and setting them aside to dry I resized and printed out some family photos (that’s my mom and dad and my lovely sister Phebe).
After a little drying time I used my craft knife to trim away any extra paper and then used a black sharpie just to highlight the edge of the easel.Next I sealed the photographs with some more Mod Podge.
And then I…..changed my mind.
I was going to use the stick on letters shown above pic (simply because I had them on hand) but realized that a stencil would be great.
My nephew recently got married and they took a whole series of really fun engagement photos which would be great for this. Or you could just do family photos, mom, dad, grandparents etc. Maybe even embarrassing photos of bad hair styles of days past – you know, something for folks to talk about while waiting for the chicken dish to be served.
Now, if one of you all could get married I could justify this whole, random post!
