    I’ve decided I want some of the ‘Mr & Mrs’ letters for the table at the reception, but as our wedding is nautical themed I’d love them to be blue and white striped! I’ve looked online but can only find plain ones, does anyone know of anywhere that sells coloured/patterned ones or anywhere that paints them for you? (I’ve thought about getting plain ones and painting them myself but I don’t know if they’d look rubbish – how would I get the lines straight? Hope that’s not a really daft question!). Any help much appreciated, thanks :-)

    paint with your base colour then when really dry ( leave for a week ) use low tack tape to mark off the lines then just pain with your other colour

    Or you could get plain ones and get paper with the pattern you want and cover them in the paper.

    I agree with lala, literally painting them yourself will be easier than looking to find someone to do them. x

    I would paint them yourself. Get some decorators tape, this won't peel the paint off then when you take it off.

    Gloss paint is probably the best to use on wood xxx

    OK so best place to look is probably B&Q or somewhere like that? (I could see if they have any sample pots...?)

    I think they do sell sample pots... Get a gloss roller too, then you wont get brush streaks :-) Cover it in white all over with the roller, and then when you come to do the blue totally cover where the white stripes will be and roll over it all again, then taking the tape off will be perfect stripes :-) xxx

    Should be easy enough to do as long as its straight. I have a sign that has turquoise but not stripes x
