Farmer's Market Sign
I started with a 1x8x40 pine board. I primed it then painted it with a coat of dark chocolate by DecoArt Americana. I added two coats of Buttermilk, also by DecoArt Americana.
I created the Farmer's Market graphics in PicMonkey and saved to my computer. I opened the document in Block Poster and printed out the PDF it generated. I traced the design on the prepared board and painted in the letters using Lamp Black by DecoArt Americana...of course. Once the letters dried I sanded the board then stained it for an antique look. After taking this photo I noticed the letters still looked darker than I wanted, I got the sand disk out and sanded over the letters again. When I finally had the look I wanted I added two coats of matte poly to finish it. I found a couple of black hooks to add to it so I can hang some baskets or tins.
I ( I mean my Sweetie) will be hanging this over my kitchen window. I'll take some photos once he's finished.
This project was inspired by Candace at Vinatagenewsjunkie pay her a visit for more ideas and details for this sign.
