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. I love this sign Susan! I am going to try to make a frame. I see them all over and the Michael's frames just aren't the same. So fun to visit. laura

    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!

    1. It was pretty quick and easy using your awesome stencil :)
