DIY Wood Sign

A few months ago, I picked up a couple of old barn wood planks at an antique store.  As usual, I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do with them, although I knew it would be a wood sign of some sort.

Today, I made a very simple, personalized sign with one of them.  This is a very easy project!  Of course you can use any wood, old or new, to do this stenciled sign.

This board is weathered, battered and has old nail holes in it. It’s beautiful! 😀

I used Powerpoint to print this out. After finding the font and the size I wanted, I just cut out the letters to make a stencil.

I use to teach pre-school, can ya tell? Look at those nicely done cut-out letters. All my kids were very accomplished scissor users when they graduated pre-school.  Ha! 😉

I used a stencil brush and left over paint. Always pounce your brush on a paper towel before you begin. Less is more when stenciling!

I still need to place pictures in the frames, but finally this wall is complete.  Question… Why does 1995 looks so old and seem so long ago??  Was I even old enough to get married?  Wasn’t I just a baby?  1995 is like… last CENTURY!  Oh crap, I am old!

Yep, 1995, the year I was born married.  I still have one more board. What to do, what to do…
