Stenciled Initial on a Salvaged Screen

I've been looking for an old square window screen for quite a while now. I was about to give up and make my own when I spotted something at an antique mall a few weeks ago.  It wasn't a window, but it was square-ish and it had the rustic character I was looking for.

I'm not sure what it was originally used for, but it was a perfect canvas for my last name initial - H.

This is the blah and boring frame I started with. I washed it with warm soapy water, then conditioned the dry wood with some Howard Feed-N-Wax.

I created the H with my Silhouette Cameo, then stenciled the screen with acrylic paint using the dry brush technique.  A little paint goes a long way when stenciling on a screen!

It needed a little something extra, so I glued a vintage drawer handle to the top of the frame with E6000.

H is also for Happy! Healthy! Heart!
