Do you remember these bed parts I got recently for $5.00? The one in the front is painted, while the one in the back had never been painted. I used my sawzall to cut the posts off of the headboard. (I used my compound miter saw to even up the ends after I cut them with the sawzall) This sign was made with the bottom of the piece that was not painted.
I used some contact paper in my Silhouette SD to make some stencils. (I still have the positive pieces to stencil another sign someday.)
The word was very large and difficult to work with because the font was very “frilly”.
I used some ScotchBlue Painter’s tape to tape off the edges of my repurposed headboard sign.
I used some Krylon Dual, paint and primer in one to spray paint the piece black.
Several light coats work best. I did it basically like I did the Welcome headboard bench.
I removed the stencils and was thrilled with the results. The fleur-de-lis were so crisp, they almost looked like stickers.
To give the sign a little shine, I applied some wipe-on poly right over the paint.. I wasn’t sure if it was going to work, but it did just fine.
This might be one of my favorite signs. I really like the natural wood tone with the black paint. I made a Home–Where your story begins out of the larger top board.
Are you a wood tone lover? Or do you prefer painted signs?
