A couple of weeks ago I made over some metal signs. Come along and I'll show you what I did....
The first sign started out looking like this. I found this beauty at the thrift store. It is made of metal so I knew it had potential.
My first attempt was this. I've shown it to you before. It's good to keep humble, lol. I painted it white with black accents and attempted to stencil it.
My second attempt: I painted it cream with taupe accents and some glaze.
Wonderfully Wordy had a sale on their vinyl so I got this "welcome" vinyl in brown. Much better than stenciling!!!! You just need to measure your sign carefully so you purchase vinyl that is the right size.
I got this sign from Ross department store. It was marked down (for obvious reasons). Even though the paper was coming off, it was a pain in the booty to get it all off. I had to use Googone and there was still glue residue on it when all the paper came off. So I'm not really recommending this project to anyone.
I painted the sign green, the raised parts of the sign were painted white and I applied a bit of antiquing glaze to this sign as well.
I also got this "family" vinyl on sale from Wonderfully Wordy too.
So there you have it. Two "new" signs for Fern Creek Cottage.
