I Want to Ride my Bicycle, I Want to Ride my Bike!

Using a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy, I painted this 3x4 foot sign on some pallet wood I  put together.
I used the pencil on the back transfer method--quite the pain, but it worked for the most part.  Some of it I had to make up because the wood was so hard it didn't transfer well, but I was pleased with the results.
I used a light stain over the top.  A fun piece with some visual imapct.
Find more ideas at Graphics Fairy! and at Donna's Funky Junk Interiors.

  21. Fabulous! I will try to make one but will it stay on the wall? How much can this weight? How do you make sure it is safe on the wall? Thanks for your precious time and for sharing your wonderful ideas. ;)
