Shiplap Market Sign

  I love large chippy wood signs.....

                                                   

                                                  




I made this Market sign with two boards that I found in the trash.  


HERE IS HOW I MADE THE SIGN:
First I cleaned the boards and gave them a quick sanding.  Then I assembled the boards together and painted them black.  Using my computer I printed the letters on regular printer paper, then I cut each letter out. After the paint dried I positioned the letters on top of the boards.  Using white paint I painted right over the entire piece.  While the paint was tacky I peeled the paper letters off.  This was a little messy and I had to go back and clean up the lines of the letters.  Once I was happy with how the letters looked, I distressed the sign and added a couple of hooks to the back for hanging.



Now it is ready to hang!
