With supplies and instruction provided by my friend Brenda's (in white top) niece Mel. Quite the crafty gal, she is!
First step, painting our wooden shutters....
My friends Peggy and Robin are doing synchronized painting here. Yes, my peeps are talented!!!
And they can sure woman-handle a drill too!
So much fun power-screwing those metal hinges on!
The letters were vinyl. After very careful placement and lots of hard rubbing, the big reveal....
Looks perfect, Peggy!
Of course it does...my peeps are perfectionists too!
A couple of people left early, but most posed for the group "after" photo. (You can recognize me by my red/gray shutter...)
A fun evening with special friends...the sign was just a bonus!
