I thought I could put it above my bedroom door then it dawned on me that putting it above the bathroom would help guests in their "time of need." We have a long hallway and it is where the bathroom and all the bedrooms are and it can be kind of intimidating to walk down if you are new here.
So I painted it up, sanded it a little, left it outside while I worked on 10 other things, then eventually got back to it with an idea to use the Cameo to put a cool font and leaves on it after getting inspired from a fellow Silhouette Challenge participant, Beverly at Give me a paintbrush who decorated her table with the prettiest circular flowers and design.
I am also in the process of painting the walls in the hallway a beautiful dark slate color (which I just finished) and then I am going to use an arrow stencil in metallic silver to give it the final touches. So I knew with the walls being dark, I needed the sign to be white so it would really pop.
So here is the sign completed and I am loving it. Next is stenciling the hallway or half of it so the sign and everything else really pops as well.

|Don't mind the glow in the dark paint on the ceiling. It's left over from the dry erase calendar project from a while back.|
I am really excited about the new wall color (Slate) and my upcoming stencil project down this narrow hallway and will show you the results soon! In the meantime, here are a few other Silhouette projects I have done since first receiving my machine. They are basic but I thought worth mentioning!

Have you made a powder room sign or done any other designs with your Cameo or Portrait? What did you like or what would you change about the sign?
Hope you liked it and if you want to check out some other great ideas with the Silhouette, here are some other projects from this month's challenge!
