"P" is for Planked Sign

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.

Beautiful! You are seriously so good with a paint brush when painting letters especially. I am going to have to give this a try soon.
