Rustic Chippy Sign

I picked up a homemade cutting board at a garage sale because I knew it was perfect for a sign--a rustic, cabin style Pine Lodge sign.

Using craft paints, I painted it red first.  When that was dry I painted two colors of green over the top. When the green was ALMOST dry, but not quite, I used a paint scraper to remove some of the green and some of the red to show the wood.  I brushed the damp paint a little to smooth over any areas that got a little to "roughed up" with the paint scraper.

When it was all dry, I stenciled PINE LODGE on the sign and then I sanded a little over the words when they were dry.  I finished it all with some golden oak stain to give it a yellowing, vintage feel.
