Guest Book Bench
We bought good old pine wood from Home Depot because I knew I wanted to paint it. We spent about $60 on the wood (lucky for us we had a gift card from the wedding shower). Just to give you an idea on size the top board is 1 ft x 4 ft.
The decal was ordered from Uppercase Living for about $20 plus shipping. It was a little pricey for the decal but it looks way better then trying to paint it by hand... and a lot faster too! I love this company! You can get personalized decals made to order. They also have other really fun designs. Check them out! www.uppercaseliving.com
Once we painted the bench and the decal was applied it was ready for the wedding guests! I picked a couple colors of a multi pack of Sharpies to go along with my wedding colors. I made a sign which stated:
"Today is a day to remeber forever,
and a guest book is often misplaced.
We decided to make a bench,
so the memories of today are forever in place!
SIGNATURES ONLY PLEASE"
I framed the sign and we put it by the markers. Once the wedding was over I sprayed it with polyurethane to make sure the signatures don't rub off.
As for this project... I wouldn't change a thing! I love it!
