Thought it would be a great time to answer some of your questions. Number one question still is, "What paint technique did you use?" Refer to this post:
And what colors do I use? I change them all the time--mix and match. My best advice is to peruse the paint chips at your favorite paint store.
Where do you get your wood/ barnwood? Much of the wood I use is from pallets--find pallets at hardware stores, cart part places, plumbing supply.
I was blessed to be given a few lovely loads of barnwood from a friend. If you are not so lucky, find different friends ;)! You can search the countryside for falling down buildings and ask the owner for the wood--some will give it to you for a fee, some are happy to have you remove the dilapidated building.
Also be on the look out for fences coming down--cedar stains beautifully,
or old play structures/ swingsets.
How did you build that? Almost all of my construction is simple and easy and starts with a 2x4 rectangle. Check out my tutorials listed above--once you build one or two, your creativity will soar.
How did you letter that? Some simple signs are hand lettered,
Sometimes I use pencil or chalk to transfer the design as I show here
Sometimes I use stencils
And sometimes I use vinyl on my cricut like in this prayer sign.
Hope that answers a few questions--I know you will have more! Happy Day!
