Canvas Open Sign


When I opened a new room at the antique store.

To celebrate I created a canvas open sign for my room.

Business was booming and I moved from a little nook in the wall to a full fledged room.

I thought a vintage looking open sign would be adorable.

I am adding affiliate links (in green) so you can order the products I used for this project. 

I began with a length of drop cloth fabric

I painted the fabric with Chalky Paint.

In the morning when the paint was dry, I traced fun lettering in a font called Showboat onto the canvas then colored it in with a Sharpie paint marker.

The finished sign hung from a vintage hanger and announced to all that my new little room was OPEN!

    1. Hi Molly I used a piece of carbon paper under the printed letters then painted in the lines :)

    1. Hi! The letters are about 4" tall. I'm not sure how large the sign is because it sold. I believe about 18" long? Enjoy, I loved it!
