It will probably take a few coats of paint to cover the board if you are using a dark base stain. I like to use spray paint because paint and a brush tend to smear the Vaseline all over the board. The paint should chip off the board leaving the stained wood showing underneath.
Oh this is beautiful Liz!! Thanks for sharing these great tips! I see some sign making in my future!
Wear a mask. Clean the board with a shop vac to get any paint flakes off. Wipe down with a damp rag.
Start with a dog-eared fence boards, and cut the half circle ends. The whole thing took less than 5 minutes. I made a template for the wording, just like on my Cotton Seed Sack Table. Using a ball point pen, we pressed down hard and traced the entire outline of all the letters.

Artist Shelle Lindholm lives at the edge of the woods, where a rambunctious carnival of birds and beasts root, romp and rest just outside her studio door. They are chock full of live-in-the-moment goodness. They make me laugh, and cry.
You guys, I am so excited to share this super fun DIY with you today. I am so obsessed it may be border line creepy. Obviously I know we are not friends but I sure do love their decor style.
Signs may be used for many different purposes. From advertising your garage sale to marketing your business; signs direct, inform and inspire your audience. A sign doesn't have to give the entire message about your organization.
We recently finished up a renovation for our Mudroom and needed something for a long blank wall between our garage entry door and the doorway to the kitchen. We looked around at antique shows and thrift shops and didn't find anything she liked. So my wife decided to make an antique sign out of some cheap lumber.
