Hello again - we're almost to the end of another week. Yes! I'm ready for some rest after having a long and busy weekend. I am seriously lacking in my posting these days. Between working on a semi-big project (painting the fireplace) and April being a big birthday month for family and friends (we're talking 10+ people including myself), I haven't really gotten much else done.
I wanted to stop in and share another cork monogram that I made earlier this week. A couple of weeks ago, I posted this tutorial on how to make a cork monogram. It was so simple to do. So, I decided to make one as a gift for my friend's belated birthday (another April birthday!). It was actually more difficult to do than the "F" I made, since the "G" has a good curve to it, but I think it came out pretty well if I do say so myself.
I followed the same process as in the tutorial for the "F" - I just laid out all the corks in an arrangement I liked and one-by-one glued them together. It was a bit harder on the curves because I couldn't keep the corks exactly as I had laid them out, but it was close enough.
I also wasn't able to make it so that it sat flat on its bottom, so you can see how it tilts to the left a bit. I was kind of bummed about that, but a hanger can be attached to the back so it can be hung up on a wall instead.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look! In addition to few quick projects, I'm hoping to start painting my interior doors this weekend. They are an off-white/cream/dingy color and have never been painted in the 2 1/2 years that I've owned the house, so they are long overdue for an update!
