I love the show Fixer Upper. I also love the super cute decor that Joanna uses to stage their homes. Have you seen the Magnolia Market website? There are so many things that I want, but I do not have a big enough bank account to buy them all.
This lovely sign is $70. I love it, but I cannot see paying that for this sign.
I did have a can of white paint, a board, and black paint.
I quickly painted my board white. I then created some letter stencils.
I traced the letters and then painted them in with black paint.
I then added hangers to the back.
I then hung the sign in my dining room. It’s not perfect but I love it! What do you all think?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This time of year is always a busy one for teachers, so I never seem to post as many blog posts as I’d like. Today, I’d like to share some super cute farmhouse projects with you all.
You can make this one with just a stencil, some scrap wood, some paint and some wood stain. You can even freehand it if you’re more artistically talented than I am. There are so many things I want to put on a sign like this one! I can’t wait to make a few more.
I made this box from some mis-measured wood pieces from another project, and some walnut wood stain. I have used this box for Christmas, for spring, for fall, and for winter. It’s so much fun to decorate with!
Wooden farmhouse signs are everywhere these days. They’re available in a number of colors, fonts and sizes, and with a number of words, quotes and themes. I absolutely love typographical art, and I’d dare say you can find something typographical in every room of our home.
And now it’s easier than ever to make your own. Did you know that both Walmart and Hobby Lobby are selling a plethora of blank wood signs and materials?
I knew I wanted to incorporate the Bible verse Ruth 1:16-17 into our room somehow. We used this verse in our wedding ceremony, and we have it engraved in our wedding bands. It only seemed right to make signs with this verse for our room.
I have read about how you can create stencils using contact paper, so I decided to give it a try. I hopped on my computer and created a design.
I then sent it to the Silhouette machine and created a stencil, but I printed it backwards. #oops
This is an easy problem to fix, though. You can either flip your design around in Design Space, or you can simply flip your contact paper over so that the writing is face down. That’s what I did.
This is my contact paper face down, with the stencil already cut. You can’t tell, though, so just take my word for it. Promise!
I finally cut out my stencil and popped my letters out. I affixed them to the boards, and filled in the stencils with white chalk paint.
I then allowed the paint to dry and then peeled the stencils off.
I absolutely love how these turned out. They also ended up being absolutely perfect for the space.
