Grocery & Market Signs3:53 PM
I love to make signs
I like to copy signs I've seen on Pinterest like the Farmer's Market Sign Donna from Funky Junk Interiors made.
But now Donna has a new line of stencils called Old Sign Stencils.
They are awesome stencils and now you can make this sign at home too with her Farmer's Market Stencil.
She is also working on a whole new batch of great stencils for signs.

This one is hanging in my kitchen since the day after she made hers. I just love it!
Other signs are my own creation...
but Donna is working on a Grocery sign so you can make one of those too!
For this sign I'm using boards from an old repurposed garage cabinet.
The boards were beautiful but a pain to disassemble.
Once I got them apart I began scraping off the peeling paint that hadn't fallen off already.
I sealed the woods with a matte varnish before I did the lettering so more paint wouldn't chip off...
I printed out my letters for MARKET on the computer then traced it onto the sign.
Using Old Sign Stencils will be much easier next time!
I hand painted the word FARMER.
When the lettering dried sanded the words then used clear wax to seal the surface.
My signs look quite old and authentic with this awesome
