My Finished Wood Sign

I finally finished my wood sign! It took me forever to decide what I wanted it to say or if I wanted to use paper letters or vinyl. I decided on a simple one word phrase with vinyl. It definitely is inspired by the one I saw at Shanty 2 Chic

I don't have a power saw so I had to wait until I could utilize my handy dandy dad to cut the wood for me.The materials used were:

2-planks of wood (whatever size you want) cut in half
wood stain in walnut
wood glue
silhouette SD and light gray vinyl

Once the boards were cut in half, I glued them together, one on top of the other.  When the glue dried, I took a wash cloth and wiped on the stain.  I used 2 coats but that is all to your preference.  Once it was all dry I added my word.  Seriously my simplest project yet and I love the way it turned out!

What have you been working on this week? I'd love to hear about it!
