Monogramed Hammer

Every Dad can use a hammer around the house, especially if there's a long to do list of fixes. By adding his first initial and doing a a custom paint job, Dad will be sure to love it.

You need

I wood handled hammer
Sand paper
Black fine point marker
Clear sealer

How to

Sand the wood handle to rough up any coating that may have been added. Paint one side of the wooden handle white. Once it's dry paint the other side white

Decorate the rest of the hammer in whatever fashion you like. You will need to paint one side , let it dry, and then paint the other side.

Use black fine point marker to add any details , such as outlines. It's important to let the marker dry for a good 30 minutes, otherwise your sealer may cause the marker to bleed

To monogram the hammer, paint the first letter of dad's name toward the bottom of the handle
In a well ventilated area, spray the hammer with a clear sealer
