I’ve got a fun giveaway just for you today! Two of you, to be precise.
Jesse, the talented DIYer, craftsman, blogger, and artist extraordinaire of Nine Red has generously offered to give away any string-art item in his shop to two Better After readers!*
I just hope your names are Jacob or Luke.
Ha! I kid of course.
Jesse’s designs are completely customizable, from the paint, to the stain, to the string, right down to the color of the nails. Maybe you’ll recognize this one:
Jesse sent me this beautiful name tablet to help celebrate the birth of my son Tyce in January. I love it so much! Everyone that sees it loves it! He came up with the color block design using a dark stain and a neutral paint, with one little strip of natural wood showing in the middle. He even went so far as to find me a board without knots, kindly tolerating my weirdo knot-phobia.
I chose my favorite font, and he did all the rest. Notice the ombre effect with the gray string? I can’t wait to hang it up when we move. Until then, I’m happy to look at it everyday on Tyce’s dresser and smile.
I’ve also had this initial art that he made for a few years now, and I still love it! You can see in the picture that the nailheads are copper, and it looks so cool when the sun hits them through the window.
Of course, that’s not all he’s got. There are plenty of designs to choose from in his shop.
Animals, abstract designs, even states!
How cool is this faceted look?
And for the DIYers out there who are itching to give it a try themselves, well, Jesse’s got you covered too. If you bought all the supplies yourself, you’d soon find yourself left with a bunch of extra wood, a nearly full can of stain, boxes of nails and reams of string. Who needs that? Stick to the fun part at a fraction of the cost, with a DIY kit!
Each kit includes a precut board that comes sanded and stained to your liking – so you can jump right in to the fun part! Everything you need is included, right down to the fuzzy felt pads and hanging apparatus for the backside. And of course, everything is customizable.
Head on over to Nine Red to see everything he offers!
And now, enter to win!
Entering is easy, simply use the Rafflecopter below Extra entry if you are a Nine Red fan on Facebook!
Giveaway ends and random winner will be chosen Thursday, May 1st. *Item not to exceed $200.
