I really wasn't looking to make a new sign for my kitchen, but as I was looking around the
GOOD WILL STORE
on Friday I found this great looking piece stuck in the corner.
It was my price.....$.99....but when I flipped it over, I gasped. It was not only hideous but it had an
offensive bit of so called humor.
I was embarrassed by my purchase, I ignored the stares and repeated over and over....I'm going to
paint it !
SO....There are NO before pictures ! I used white Chalk Paint to cover it immediately!
The sign was large 28'' long by 7'' wide and just the right size for the word FARMHOUSE.
a brush, foam or bristle
3 '' stencils, a couple sheets of paper taped together
carbon paper taped to the back of lettering
sand paper or sanding block
Laid out the stencils to see if it would fit the sign
Stenciled on to paper for final placement
Taped carbon paper to back of paper.
Center the word on the board. Tape in place. Draw over your stencil lines.
Remove your paper and fill in with paint. After the paint has dried,
you can go over the whole sign with a light sanding to give it a
distressed look. You can seal with clear wax if you like.
The after was much better than the before!
Keep a look out for those wood items with great potential.
Happy Hunting at the GOOD WILL,
