Bakery Sign

 

img_7162I love the way this sign turned out.  I wanted a bit of a farmhouse look but not totally.  I first painted a cabinet door with 2 coats of Rustoleum White Linen.  Applied a coat of Minwax to prevent a stain from soaking into the paint, which I applied next, a couple of coats of GF  Van Dyke Brown stain.  I would apply this then wipe off and repeated until I had the shade I wanted.  Next I applied a stencil with Artist Loft acrylic paint Brown.  Then topped it all off with another coat of wax.  Ssssooo easy and it looks great.

    That’s so pretty. I’ve always wanted a sign like this in the kitchen and I really love the way you aged it. It looks so authentic and old.
