Materials needed for farmhouse kitchen sign
Wood framed picture – this is my “thrift store” item. I actually got mine at a garage sale
- I used Linen White
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.
What do you think?
