Hanging Coffee Bar Sign

I created a one of a kind hanging sign for a coffee bar.

I used the back of an old chair for the top arch, and a piece of reclaimed flooring for the sign, I created a coffee bar sign with a little extra zing!

I painted a reclaimed floor board light green then gave it a dark wash effect. 

I printed out the word COFFEE on the computer then using carbon paper, traced it onto the board. I painted in the letters with black craft paint.

When the letters were dry I sprayed the painted surface with water, dry brushed a darker color over the water, then wiped the wet surface with a rag. 

This leaves a beautiful streaked effect on the sign.

Using eye hooks and clips I attached the sign to the arch and my coffee sign has a little extra character.
