Look What I did with This

Don't pass up these signs at garage sales or Dollar Store. I love any kind of farm sign, 

I especially love this inspiration sign below






So when I saw this sign at Dollar Tree I knew I wanted to make one.




I started by turning it over to remove the ribbon and gave it a light sanding.

I didn't worry about filling in where the stable was, I thought it would

make the sign rustic. I base coated with black paint.








The next step is to topcoat with a color of your choice. I choose a creamy off-white. once

it was dried I lightly sanded the edges and in the middle to reveal the worn black look. 

Now if you don't have a cutting machine to make the letters, no worries you can buy 

them right at the dollar store. I have a cutting machine to cut each sign, applied the 

stencil and hand-painted each sign. Once dried I again sanded the entire sign for a worn 

look to the letters.  If you're using the dollar tree lettering, you'll want to sand the sign

again to reveal more distressing, then place your letters on top of the sign.

Here is the finish sign, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Next time I'm going

 to get a few more signs to make a larger one for fall. Share if you ever make one?
