one of the fun details in grady's new bathroom is the "pit stop" sign that i made that hangs above the cork board map.
the FUN part about the map is that he gets to put a pin in the map everyplace that he has....uh...
used the bathroom!
(i had my sister in law make the map about 3 years ago as a way for my kids to keep track of where our family lives, and where important events have taken place.)
we thought of several other names (i "wizz" here, places i've peed,)
before we came up with the relatively safe and not-too-graphic-and-pee-related PIT STOP.
here is what i did to make it:
i bought this sign a loooooong time ago. and i have never used it anywhere.
it was one of those crazy clearance deals at tj maxx for like $4, and i figured that at some point in time i would repaint it or repurpose it.

i bought the letters from michaels...they were on sale, and i believe i paid around $11 for all of them.
once i figured about how much space the letters would take up, i cut off the extra few inches.
i used this adhesive to attach the letters to my (now) shorter sign.
i used a white spray primer/paint to coat the entire thing:
