Our new house has a fun 3 seasons room/enclosed porch and I wanted to make a welcome sign to welcome our guests. I am so happy with how it turned out.
Here is what I did in case you want to make your own. :)
I had a 1x4 lying around, but the wood wasn't weathered, it looked too new. Since I was trying to keep the budget low I decided to make my own stain. I went with a mix of steel wool and vinegar, coffee and tea.
I would recommend cutting the wood before staining, but I wasn't sure my stain would turn out so I cut after. My husband actually did the work of cutting the wood with a hand saw for me. After he cut it I attached 2 small pieces of wood on the back with screws to hold the boards together.
There are different ways to paint on wood. I used my Silhouette SD to make a stencil out of vinyl and painted with a foam brush and acrylic craft paint. (Font is Bickham Script Pro Regular) Once the paint dried I peeled up the stencil. Done!
One step closer to making our house a home. :)
