Hello Beautiful Sign

When you name your daughter Bea, you're allowed to have a little fun with it. For years, we've played around with lots of "bumblebee" themes. (Like this. And this. And this.) But now that she's getting a little older, I've been highlighting the fact that her name is also the start of the word BEAUTIFUL.

We made this corner sign for her bedroom last month and I love how it says both: Hello Bea & Hello Beautiful. 

Eric bought a 4x8-foot sheet of birch plywood and cut it to fit the corner dimensions of her room. Then I painted the words with white acrylic craft paint. To give it a satin finish, Eric sprayed a clear coat of polyurethane over the top.

Now, every morning when I wake her up, I say "Hello Bea... utiful."
