It’ s been awhile since I’ve shared on the blog. I ran out of steam there for awhile, but I’m back with a project I’ve been planning for some time, and finally got around to: my self serve sign for the kitchen.
We’re slowly but surely making some changes to our builder grade home, like a new back splash that we love. Still, I thought the kitchen needed a little more character.
I used a scrap of wood and had my husband make a DIY frame, just like we made for our engineer print gallery. I stained the base and frame with engineer print gallery. in Early American, just like our Proverbs 31 canvas frame.
Then, I dry brushed the sign with some flat white base paint and sanded to give it a old, weathered look.
I decided to print the words on paper and used a Sharpie to make a rough stencil. I then used some leftover chalkboard paint to fill in the letters.
I sanded it one more time to keep that weathered feel. I love my self serve sign!
I couldn’t decide what phrase I wanted to use for this project, so I decided to make the sign reversible.
For the back side, I used the same stain and sanded paint for my base, but I wanted a more polished look for my letters. I cut these vinyl letters on my silhouette and stuck them on.
What do you think of my budget kitchen art? What phrase would you put on your kitchen sign?
