Count On It!

I have been having fun with my Cricut and vinyl.  I decided I needed to have some numbers on a piece or two, after being inspired by the Sisters of the Wild West.    I wanted the wood to show through so I used my cricut to cut the numbers out.  I got rolls of this border vinyl a few years ago at Lowes when the were clearanced to $3 a roll.

I painted over them, peeled them up and then used stain over the top. 

I had made sure the areas with the numbers were sanded well so they would take the stain well.

I am loving this look and you can count on me doing more vinyl reverse stenciling.

PS--Stool tutorial still to come--shot it all in RAW which blogger doesn't support.  Oops, still learning the new camera!  Oh, and these were taken with old camera still.
