Farmhouse Rustic Sign With Reclaimed Barn Wood

I needed to make a sign to go over my door in the kitchen. I wanted it to be rustic and give my kitchen a “country” feel. So I started with a pile of old reclaimed wood that came from a 100 year old barn in my local farmers community.
Look at all the old goodness!
I ordered a galvanized “farmhouse” decor piece off of Etsy from RVMETALSHOP. She was located in Georgia, yay so shipping was a breeze. It was silver, so I used a can of white spray paint and gave it two good coats.
Next my husband constructed the base of the sign. He cut the reclaimed barn wood boards to the length I wanted. He then used his Kreg Jig to attach the base of the boards together with pocket screws. He then cut a piece of the old barn wood into strips which made the frame. He used his nail gun to attach the frame.

I then used a white wash on the wood. I added a small amount of water to the white chalk paint and mixed well. I used very small brush strokes with very little paint on the brush for this affect.
I then used my hot glue gun to attach the Farmhouse piece to my frame. And here she is! I am so in love :-). Perfect for my farmhouse decor.
