Thrifty DIY Farmhouse-Style Sign

110,287 Views
Creating a rustic farmhouse-style sign is easier than you think, with a little help from the thrift store!
Find all the details and materials used in my full tutorial here!
Difficulty: Easy
When I spied this beat up (and, admittedly, a little gross) wooden cutting board at the thrift store, I snapped it up immediately. I have been wanting to create a primitive little sign for our kitchen. Besides, it was only $0.60- can't beat that price, right?
Old cutting boards are PERFECT for making DIY signs, which are so hot and trendy right now. First, I removed a layer or two of its previous life before giving it a rich stain that would look rustic, weathered and wonderfully farmhouse-y.
I love how the board looks now- those knife scars give it a really weathered look! Next, I used an awesome vinyl stencil to transform the cutting board into a sign for our kitchen. ( Check out my full tutorial for all the DIY details and secret tricks! )
After ensuring it would hang securely, I added a couple of hooks for our coffee cups! How cute is that? It's warm and cozy, and just looks perfect in our kitchen. Pumpkin spice latte, anyone?

Materials I used for this project:

  • Cutting Board   (thrift store)
  • Stain   (Home improvement store)

    This is a thing of beauty to be sure. Very clever and well executed. The only thing I would do is change out the Phillips head screws for the old style single slot head screws. I think this would make the whole thing look even more antique.
