Vintage Inspired Market Sign

When someone asks if you might want some FREE plywood scraps, you say, "Yes please!"

The pieces I was able to get are perfect for these fun, chippy, vintage inspired signs I have been making.

I paint the wood with layers of latex paint, using a scrap block of wood to apply the paint. I then do some sanding and stain the sign board.

When the stain is dry, I stencil the letters, using store-bought letter stencils.

I then hand-paint the shadow on the letters.

Each sign is different and I am having a lot of fun creating them.
