How to Make a Farmhouse Signs the Easy Way

Do you love farmhouse style?! I know you do! We all love Fixer Upper and farmhouse style! So, today we are going to make some easy DIY farmhouse DECOR? 

All it takes is wood planks, a bit of paint, and a printer and you can pretty much make any kind of farmhouse sign you'd like cheaply and easily. 

I made two signs for my home to show off this rustic, farmhouse sign technique, and today I`ll give you my easy how-to.

We were happy to have pile of reclaimed wood from our cottage. Maybe some would call it junk, but I call it treasure! Love, love, love the weathered look on this piece of wood! It was in the sun, rain and snow for years and turned in farmhouse beauty... 
If you want to see how easy is to turn this into this, just keep watching...
Materials used:
Wood plank (size of your choice)
Paint
Paint brush
Computer printer
Printing paper
Tape
Sander or sand paper
Clear varnish
Hanging kit

Tutorial:
You can choose to leave your wood raw or paint it in color of your choice. Anyhow, sand and wipe down your wood planks first. One plank was darker and weathered and the other one was brand new. I decided to give them both just a light white wash. I thought that a combination of raw wood and a little bit of white wash would be pretty in our kitchen.
To create the letters, I made my own stencils by printing the letters I needed on paper. You can just use Microsoft Word (like I do) or PicMonkey to design your words or letters on a page to print.
After your prints are done, take a pen and trace (scribble) the back of each letter.
You will want to make sure that the letters are fully saturated (if you`re having hard time to see your letters, place the print on the window and than you can see the letters through the back layer of paper).
Once you have each letter traced, cut off all excess paper. Now, it is time to figure out spacing. Lay out all of your letter across the board and tape them in place. For this technique you must tape them down or your letters will get messed up.
Now, take your pen and go over the outline of each letter. Check if there`s marks on the board once in a while and correct if needed. 
Once you have your letters outlined on the board, remove the paper, take your sharpie and go over the outline of the letters. Do not worry about the outline being bold, we will distress it later.
Now it is time to paint! Using the acrylic craft paint fill in the outlined letters. I again just did one coat as to not make the lettering too bold.
After you have traced and colored in all letters, allow sign to dry.
After the piece is dry take the sand paper and gently go over the sign distressing it in some areas and dulling the words in others. This was my favorite part! Once your sanding is complete take your wet rag and gently wipe off your wooden farmhouse sign. 
Last, finish with a coat of clear varnish, add hooks for hanging  and your new sign is ready to go on the wall. So stinking easy and cool!
Now, let`s take a look of them in my kitchen...
What do you think? Are you going to try this easy DIY farmhouse decor?
Thank you so much for stopping by, wishing you a wonderful day!

10 Free Fall and Home Printables

Hi Friends! I have something fun for you today! I`m sharing 10 fun and free printables for you to add to your home decor! It is a little gift from our home to yours this Autumn season! I combined different style of printables, ones are just for fall, but the other ones can stay in your home all year round. 
I also made this "gather" and "thankful" tags for your table setting and of course I have the free printable for you too.
I thought it would be sweet to add little tags with different words to each plate, maybe on a cute little pumpkin. You can print them on craft black cardstock, punch a hole and tie them on with thin twine. They would be fun banner on a mantel, as well. 

Please remember this is for personal use only and is not to be used for sale in any form.

I am so excited for Fall and all that it brings! What about you!?
