I went to my favorite free font site, Font Squirrel, and found a simple modern looking font...Quicksand Lite. I printed the words the size I wanted (200 point), used my laser level to make sure it was straight and measured where center to place the letters correctly. Then used the transfer method in the tutorial.
First, I put the words where I wanted them using painter's masking tape, and made a few adjustments.
Then, with the paper taped to the wall, I traced each letter with a blunt pencil that had lost it's lead. After everything was traced, I mixed a little black craft paint mixed and glossy varnish on a paper plate so it was easy to carry. I set up my stool and carefully painted each letter with my smallest brush.
I am so excited with the result. Just what I was hoping for...simple, effective, and a great reminder of what a blessing my children are each time I come out of my bedroom.
