Paint: DIY handpainted planked wood sign
Create your own handpainted planked wood sign using your favorite quote.
A great scrap wood project that benefits from all the imperfections.
How to make a planked wood sign:
Step 1: Cut 3/4" boards all the same length, nail and glue to 1/4" plywood backing.
Step 2: Paint wood planks.
Step 3: Sand planks to distress.
Step 4: Print out lettering to fit and layout on board.
Step 5: Trace lettering using heavy pressure with ballpoint pen.
Step 6: The pen creates an indent in the wood.
Step 7: Paint on and inside the indent.
For added dimension paint a dark blue shadow down and to the right of each letter. Apply stain to enhance the distressed wood then seal with clear spray poly.
Stain 1/4" flat moulding, glue and nail into sides of planks to create frame.
