Stenciling a Large Farmhouse Sign

A very large farmhouse sign made from scraps.

Not too long ago I got a call from a friend to check out a guy who had a bunch of old wood on the side of his house. 

I was there in minutes only to find a pile so large I could barely manage it so I just grabbed a carload of pieces off the top and headed for home.

These were rough shingled pieces but were perfect for the rustic piece I had in mind... didn't even need to make a cut.

I painted the board with Fusion Mineral Paint in Cathedral Taupe, one of my favorite grey-beige colors. One coat was all it needed.

Next I grabbed a stencil I've been anxious to use but haven't had a reclaimed wood piece long enough... until now. 

I'm using the FARMHOUSE stencil from Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors. Donna provided me with this stencil and I love it. 

I had the chance to use only the "farm" part of the stencil on the farm crate I made for a friend a while back.

I'm laying out the whole long FARMHOUSE stencil for this project.

When I stencil I either use spray adhesive or painter's tape to hold down the stencil. 

I use foam pouncers to apply the paint in the stencil. 

When the paint was dry I gave it a quick sanding with the sander.

A perfect large FARMHOUSE sign in no time!

It sold right away and will be honoring someone's 
upstate summer home.
