Over the weekend, I went out to the barn and rummaged through some of our scrap lumber.
I came out with an almost perfect 1×4. Using a router made the edges have a little more character, but it’s not totally necessary. It’s just my preference.
I know there are many ways to make a vintage looking sign, but for me, it’s all about keeping it simple, man.
A base coat of black paint. Then a coat of ivory paint. A little sandpaper action around all the edges, and bada-bing, it’s all done but the
cryin inspirational word. I chose Believe, because for me it’s a pretty powerful word.
Because I pretty much prefer “easy”, I just used stencils and sponged on the black craft paint.
The last thing, which I almost forgot, was intalling a hanger on the back.
BOOM! I have a new sign.
