Next, apply a light coat of the linen colored paint all over the burlap . You will need to push the sponge brush down into the texture of the burlap. We allowed the paint to dry and then touched up a few areas that we missed!

    I liked seeing how you chose to do it. I think it would be fun to have a variety of different letter effects going in one room too. Thanks for the idea of the paint on top. I wouldn’t have thought of that. It turned out really well. Typography always adds to the look of a space in a positive way, as far as I’m concerned anyway. Thanks for the how-to. I hope you’ll stop over and visit me at Quirky Vistas!
