Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
---Charles Caleb Colton
Well, I googled the Google, perused the Pinterest & searched high and low. I kept coming up empty on my quest for a vintage kitchen sign.
Nothing compared to these little beauties:
|Flea Market Style|
|Get Your Martha On|
Now they say that patience is a virtue. Unfortunately, this is not something I possess so it was time to take matters into my own hands.
I stopped by my local hardware store and picked up the following items:
*one random piece of lumber
*sample of white paint
*black craft paint
After painting the board white, I printed off and cut out my letters.
**Please note the stylish masking tape I used during the layout.
After I had attached all of my letters, I traced them with a pencil.
I removed the letters and painted them black.
Here is where it got interesting.
I took my new sign outside and proceeded to sand, stain, and hammer 75 years worth of vintage into it.
I am really happy with the results!
Let me know what you think!
