Imperfect is OK After All!

Pin It!
At the SNAP blogging conference, 
supplied us with a "make & take" sign.

{Here's the darling Vivienne from The V Spot working on her's.}
{We chuckled when the vinyl for her sign stuck to her name badge.}

We were supplied with a piece of wood 
which had been painted & prepared with a texturizing cream.

Vinyl was placed on the surface,
then we applied the paint color of our choice 
& removed the vinyl.

That's when my panic attack ensued.
The paint had bled under the vinyl!
Broken-hearted, I set my project aside for about 2 weeks.

Then, I put my big girl panties on, 
{I've been needing them a lot lately}
finished taking the vinyl off, & sanded like crazy.

Guess what?
I love the way it turned out!
It's supposed to have an "antiqued" look & it does!
I think it looks kinda chippy & vintage-y.
And I really like it.

{I used "Primary Yellow" Americana paint on the edges -
a gift from DecoArt.}

Sometimes things can turn out differently than we pictured,
but still be a success.

Can I get an "amen" from all those fellow
recovering perfectionists
out there?
