I have always been in love with the farmhouse decor. I have always loved the vintage, distressed look. Thanks to the amazing Joanna Gaines it has become more and more popular making it easier and easier to find things. If you haven’t watched Fixer Upper you need to! Who doesn’t love Joanna?!
This sign was so simple to make and I am adding it my piano decor for Easter. I love how reversed vinyl makes a sign look hand painted. I got everything I needed from The Wood Connection. It’s inexpensive, and will only take an hour or so of your time.
Heat Gun (optional)
First of all you are going to sand the wood. Make sure everything is smooth and ready to paint.
Take the grey paint and cover the area where the vinyl will lay.
You can let it dry, or take a heat gun and run it over the area until it is dry.
If the paint doesn’t dry all the way the vinyl won’t stick.
Once dry lay down the vinyl. Make sure it is stuck on well. I went over each piece with the end of my paint brush.
Now paint the area white. I did two or three coats. Let dry or use a heat gun.
When using a heat gun, be careful not to melt the vinyl. Keep the gun moving.
Once the white paint is dry start pulling up the vinyl. This will take time.
You can take some sandpaper and distress the areas to give it more of a distressed look.
Now you have an adorable sign to decorate your home with. I love how this turned out. It took me close to an hour to complete. It works so well with my home.
