I found the cutest/funniest/sweetest plaque at a thrift store last week. I really like the reminder of the golden rule–it’s a simple way to love others, right? And I liked how funky it was for my wall collage.

I invested $1.49 into this project. Not bad!

First, I spray painted the plaque yellow.

Then I covered the plaque with a black, water-based paint. Once the plaque was covered, I used a damp paper towel to wipe off all the excess black paint. This leaves the letters darker and antiqued.

That’s the finished product below. Doesn’t it look EXACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL? I had to laugh. It’s slightly more yellow and less gold but the difference is not much at all. Oh well!

The collage wall is above our dining room table.

It’s a little bit random and I’m fine with that.

Below is a simple centerpiece on the dining room table. You can see the plaque in the background.

This is the room we hang in when we have company or bible study. Wanna come over for dinner?
