Painting a Large Bible Verse Sign

5:30:00 AM

Another day another request for something 
someone's seen on Pinterest.


Rustic Bible verse sign

I continue to wonder why I do this to myself. 

When I get these requests I kill myself trying to recreate a project someone's seen on Pinterest. 

It's stressful but definitely gets my juices flowing!


I warn them in advance, I am not making it exactly the same as the original... for many reasons. First of all being I'm not a miracle worker LOL.

This is the beautiful photo my customer saw on Pinterest and with a little investigation I found out it came from The Grace House Interiors. (Please forgive me Jennifer!)


I started out by finding a piece of wood to use, the one I had on hand was 10" x 41". 

I am including affiliate links to products I recommend that you can use to get a similar look. Click on the dark lettering to get the link.

I painted the board white then built a frame using 2" trim. I attached the trim using wood glue and my nail gun then clamped the frame until it was dry.

When it was dry I painted the trim grey


I printed the lettering in a similar font on my computer and arranged the words on another board the same size to get it right.

I used graphite transfer paper between the printed words and the board then traced around each letter.... yes I did!



I painted in each letter using the same grey paint I used on the frame then distressed the lettering with sand paper.

My lettering is rustic and hand painted. I could have used a vinyl stencil to make the lettering perfect but I prefer the look of distressed and imperfect. 


I figure anyone who asks me to hand paint them a sign does too.

  1. love the sign! and i know what you mean...customers will send pictures of an item and ask me to make it, and i always tell them, it is not going to look the same because we are different artists with different styles and handwriting! so far, they've been happy with all the projects, as i'm sure your clients are too! your posts are the first i see everyday on facebook! thanks for sharing your ideas with us!
