Making a Special Order Milk and Cream Sign

When my customers want to know if I can make something they've seen on the internet for them, I usually say yes!

Sometimes I don't know where they found the picture they want me to reproduce so please excuse me if I don't know the source.

This one however, I knew was made with Vintage Farmhouse Stencils by Knick of Time.  I have this stencil and it was pretty easy to reproduce this project. 

I began with an 8" wide board, I cut it to about 14" long. 

I also bought 1" x 2" strips to frame out the board.

I painted the 8" wide board white and pre-stained the strips of wood for the frame. 

I cut the pre-stained strips to fit around the white board then used wood glue and my nail gun to attach the strips.

When my wooden canvas was finished I used the Milk and Cream stencil from Knick of Time to quickly and easily stencil the wood.  I used spray adhesive to keep the stencil in place while I used a foam pouncer to apply black paint in light, even coats.

The fiinal product looked just liked the requested special order so I was proud to send my customer the finished photo.

    1. Thanks Laura! The frame was not difficult to make, just nailed on some 1x2" to the sides :) Stain it first.

  2. What a compliment that they asked you to custom make one for you, Susan - that probably means you should make more, because I bet they would sell too!
