We started with a
For the actual sign part, I found this piece of wood in our garage that was the right size and was already stained (I have no idea where it came from but it works!)
Then we busted out the liquid nails. Initially I was going to have out sign say FOOD, but in order to do that, I was going to have to bend a bunch of silverware. Since this was a little difficult to do, I decided to minimize how much bending I had to do by having our sign say PANTRY.
I bent the necessary pieces and laid everything out and then started gluing.
I put little dabs of liquid nails on the back of each piece of silverware
And then placed the silverware in place. It took a few minutes to dry so I was able to move the pieces around a little to get them exactly where I wanted them.
Here you can see how the glue oozed out a little but it wasn't noticeable once it dried.
Here is what the sign looked like while it was drying
And here it is all hung up. We really like how it turned out and it was really nice to actually accomplish something associated with the pantry!
