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!


  1. So cute! I love this and will definitely be using it as inspiration. Raw woods are so practical and perfect right now. :)

    1. Love the finish and the beautiful wood. The word is one of my favorite.

  2. Thanks for every other great post. The place else could anyone get that type of info in such a perfect manner of writing? I've a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such info.
