Ready to make your own PBR Sign? Grab some wood, paint and a projector and let’s get started on a Pabst Blue Ribbon Sign!
It’s no secret the Big Guy loves his fair share of PBR swag. From golf pants (and shorts) to patio lights and glassware, it’s not hard to find PBR paraphernalia around our place. For the Big Guy’s birthday I gave him PBR Art, signed by the artist! They are three AWESOME matching prints of large murals that hang in a watering hole near Busch Stadium.
I wanted to try my hand at my own piece… Remember this planked wood sign? Well – I decided it was time to give it a makeover. So I pulled it off the wall and just painted right over the top! Here goes nothing!
I printed off a transparency of the PBR logo. I slapped it on my trusty $5 yardsale 1980′s projector (remember the kind they had when we were in school? Yeah…. just like that!) . In the photo above, you can see that I painted right over the old sign with grey paint. I just started following the lines and painting away! No tracing and turning off the projector… just let that bad boy light up the room, crack open a beer and have at it.
I already had a nail in the wall… so I hung the sign there and steadied it with washi tape while painting. Don’t you just love washi tape? There are about a million ways to use it!
So what do you think of my PBR art? Should I get bonus points for making some man-cave art for the Big Guy? Yeah…. I think so too!
Did you hear that Big Guy? Bonus points!
