As you know, my daughter is desperately wanting to change up her room to the farmhouse decor as opposed to the modern look she has now. While her room is adorable as is, who can blame her for desiring the comfy, cozy farmhouse feel?
So as one of her Christmas gifts, she asked for a sign with her favorite lyrics by her favorite country singer, Luke Bryan. Desperately seeking a project, I got busy right away.
I started with my Cricut and began making the lyrics to
“Sunrise, sunburn, sunset, repeat.”
On a chilly, wintery day, (Ironic, right? don’t worry, I’ll make this story short!) I headed out to the shed to see what wood I could find. Lo and behold I came across a slab of plywood (I’ve been getting lucky like that but I think my luck will run out soon!) just big enough and just the right shape for the sign i was attempting to make. I took some dark walnut stain and stained it while Cricut cut out the lettering for me. After letting the stain dry, I carefully added the lyrics with a paint sponge dabber and some white paint. Let that dry and took my sander and distressed the edges of the wood. Later, I added some one coat poly as a top coat to protect it from food, weathering or whatever else might destruct it.
I love the way it turned out and cant wait to display it in her farmhouse bedroom!
If you’ve made anything like this, I’d love to see it! Show me your projects!
