Barn wood sign

Pin It

I made my first barn wood sign. I used the wood we saved from my in-laws pole barn we tore down several years ago. I used walnut stain on the boards, and cut the stencil out of contact paper with my lynx. I should have put a couple coats of poly on before I did the painting of the letters. I had a really hard time getting the contact paper to stick to the wood, and had some edges that bled. Now I know for next time :)

Denise, Your sign is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the fact that it was made from reclaimed wood that had a special meaning to you.
