Farmhouse Style Welcome Sign

The ‘Fixer Upper’ or farmhouse style is extremely trendy right now.  I love this look and love looking at all the decor that goes along with this style.  Although I find my style just a tad bit more modern, I do find myself completely drawn to the farmhouse style or ‘old fashioned’ as my husband would say.   I’ve seen so many entry signs and I thought it would be extremely fun to create one myself.  This will go in my new entry.

WH July 3017-6

You only need a few things to create this project, so let’s get started.

Supplies

WH July 3017-1

– chalk paint, select your favorite colors

– 3 Walnut Hollow 12×12 wood panels

– foam brush

– stencil or cut vinyl

– permanent glue

I love the Walnut Hollow wooden panels, however, I  wanted a panel a little larger. So, I glued three 12X12 panels together, this work out perfect.

1 – Paint two coats of chalk paint on the wooden panels.  Let dry.

2 – Glue the panels together using wood or permanent glue.  Let dry over night.

3 – Skip this step if you have a premade stencil.  Create and cute a word or quote using a personal cutting machine using vinyl.

4 – Place stencil or vinyl onto the wooden panel.

5 – Paint
