Rustic Home Blocks

I love these blocks I made because they look old and rustic. The vinyl lettering was tricky because there are some super itty bitty pieces, as you can see. But it was well worth it to carry the old look from the blocks onto the letters. For the blocks, I painted them soft black first, then did the antique white over the top of it. I wanted the edges to look real old, like paint peeling (not just sanded), so I used my sanding block on the edges when the paint was still a little tacky. It kind of made the paint roll off, giving it that peeled look. I got that nifty little bird house at Real Deals---love that place! :)
