DIY Ship Lap Market Sign
I love large chippy wood signs.....
I made a 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. To make the shiplap I assembled the boards together and painted them black. Using my computer I printed the letters M A R K E T on individual 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.
I placed the sign on the built-ins in our dining room and used natural elements along with white dishware on the other shelves. I love the farmhouse feel the market sign brings to our home.
