Materials needed for farmhouse kitchen sign

Wood framed picture – this is my “thrift store” item.  I actually got mine at a garage sale

Rustoleum White Spray Paint/Primer

Rustoleum Chalked Paint

Silhouette Cameo

Silhouette Vinyl

Black Acrylic Paint

Stencil Brush

Paper towel

Sanding Block

 

This is one of my favorite things.  As you probably know Jeff and I have been working on our kitchen for a while now.  Since the new board and batten went up the old metal board for memos and such was too big.

I had these two frames that were signs for a kids bathroom and I spent $5 for the set at a garage sale.  The first one was used to make this kitchen organizer but I wanted a little more on the wall and I still had the second frame.

This is what one of them looked like when I started.

They were cute but I really bought them because I loved the wood frames and knew I could make them into something farmhouse-y!

The first thing I did with this one was to mask off the wood frame and spray the middle part.  I used a couple of coats of primer then two coats of the chalk paint.

I thought I may have trouble covering all of the bright spots but it did okay.

Once the masking was removed I had a great white background with a wood frame.  It was perfect for a farmhouse sign.  I waited a couple of weeks before using the vinyl stencil onto the paint.  I did not want it to peel off.

Creating The Stencil

You know I love to make and use stencils so I did it again on this project.  I used my Silhouette Cameo.  Here is the screen shot of my design.

After it was cut and ready I centered it onto the white space and used black acrylic to paint in the letters.  You can see below that the r and the s have been painted in.

It came out nicely.  The final step was to sand lightly to give it a slightly worn look.

I hung it on the wall with the kitchen organizer then added a little bit of vinyl below it for a terrific little display!  I love looking at this wall now.

Thank you Jeannee! I love using the Cameo although some projects are easier than others. Letting the paint cure for a while before sticking the vinyl stencil down helps a lot! I love my sign now!
