Barn Wood Sign

I made this barn wood sign for an upcoming boutique I am participating in with Reclaim-ologists and Other Crafty Chicks!

I made this on my day off and to be honest I am a little afraid of the table saw :) I always make my husband cut stuff for me.  He wasn't home so I had to do a little digging and find a piece of wood that was already the right size.  I got lucky and found this one in my stack of wood from the barn.

Because it was cracked I was afraid to pound the nails out.  I didn't want to break it.  They were pretty rusty so I just grabbed a set of pliers and broke them off.

I also took some scrap piece of wood and nailed them to the back with the brad nailer so that if it ever did crack all the way through it would stay together.


I had some glitter scrapbook paper that I hate, but it is really thick so I knew it would work perfect for making stencils.  I cut them out with the cricut.

That was it.  All done!  I LOVE how it turned out.  I am planning to make more for the boutique.  So far I plan to make one that says "EAT" and "HOME".  What ideas do you have for words I could put on a sign?

UPDATE:  I wanted to add these flowers to my sign in the beginning but didn't get it done.

  2. Hello! Found you at the Creative Blogger Hop at Homemaker on a Dime. I love this project! It's so perfect because we just came across some discounted wood that we built our vegetable garden beds with and were looking for something to do with the cracked scraps. New follower here!
    Cheers!
