I got a bunch of reclaimed wood from these vintage fruit crates.
Thought they would make some
cool signs and hangers.
Heres how they start off...
pulling them apart....
And after some gray stain, white milk paint, some color for the letters and a
TON of tung oil (these babies were THIRSTY!), here's the first one.
I found these cute bulldog hangers and used them on one of the thicker pieces:
Here is one I did w/the subway art theme....However,,,I will have to redo the
paint color on the names. This gray just does not stand out.
Custom order. SOLD
This one started with pine boards, wood stain,black chalk paint,
sand, turquoise and aqua chalk paint and I think a little milk paint as well! It gets a thorough sanding by hand until I like the level
of "distress". I measure off the spots for my stencil letters which
are done in white chalk paint. It's light sanded again and then waxed! Yes, it takes hours and hours to do!!
This displays some of the beaches in So Cal. sold
The pic below is the first one I did. I would stencil the letters and then paint each one!
I've since streamlined that process.
Both of these were made from leftover Doug Fir, attached from the back. I painted them with different colors and distressed. The top one I stenciled and then hand painted. The bottom one was a stencil.
Here are the other two I've painted, but have not done the wording.
