Didn't have to wait as long as I thought

Here is the completed altered word. My niece gave it to her friend today so I can now post the pics.
It was a good luck gift for her friend who is opening a Vintage clothing store. His nickname is HATTS, am not sure what the shop is going to be called.

I kept it simple by painting & stamping each letter, then distressing it using sprays & distress inks. I didn't go mad on the embellishments as I was working to a budget & you know how expensive it gets if you get carried away. The fob watch is a working watch, which I thought would be a fab addition. Very tempted to keep it for myself lol.

My niece was pleased & apparently her friend loves it so I am happy.













 I wouldn't mind doing some boxes & maybe a clock in a similar design. Will think about that one. Anyway here are a load of pictures. Feel free to leave a comment, it would actually be quite nice, make me feel like some one actually checks this blog out lol!
