Painted Wood Plaque and Letter

I love doing craft projects with laser-cut wood frames and plaques. I think they are both excellent ways to create unique wall art. On my recent trip to Michaels, I bought this wood plaque and wood letter:

I let the two objects sit on my table for a couple of days because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. Then, one day as I was walking around a store, I saw lots of products that were gray and yellow. I loved the way those two colors complimented each other. I immediately went to another craft store and bought yellow acrylic paint and gray chalk paint.

I painted the plaque gray:

and the letter “B” yellow:

I used two coats of paint on each object. I lightly sanded the paint on the plaque with fine grit sandpaper to give the plaque a chalk finish. Then, I hot glued the letter on the plaque and hung the finished project on my wall.
