Mom's Baking Company Sign Request

I received another "can you make this" request today. I get totally intimidated but I also feel a twinge of a challenge.

A customer sent me a photo which I recently found out came from Bits of Vintage and I thank them very much for the inspiration for this project. 

I got to work making my own version of this great distressed wooden sign. 

I used a 1"x 8" piece of wood and framed it out with 1"x 2" strips. I then painted the whole piece frame and all, white.

I cut vinyl stencils for the lettering using my Silhouette machine. 

I use a site called wordmark to find similar fonts to the inspiration piece. This is a free website that lets you type in a word you want to use and it will show you that word in every font on your computer. I use it all the time!

I used a foam pouncer to paint light coats of black in my stencil then removed the vinyl. 

I will admit that I had to re-do part of the lettering when I realized a few words were crooked.... it happens.

So this is my version of the inspiration sign and I hope my customer loves it...

Or actually... maybe I hope she doesn't because I sure do and it would look great in my own kitchen. LOL

    1. Thank you Susan... and luckily I didn't show you the crooked one. Sometimes it's hard to apply the vinyl when it is cut into all different shapes to fit on the board :/

  2. I love this so much that I'm going on a hunt for a cupboard to use tomorrow! I can only hope that mine turns out half as cool as yours did!
