Rustic Wooden Sign

5 Materials
30 Minutes
Years ago, I made a rustic rooster sign for my kitchen, on a board I had painted red. I am a huge fan of roosters and have put them on everything from DIY farmhouse plates to stenciled pillows and placemats...come peek. While I still loved the roosters, the red looked out of place in summer. So I flipped the board over and started again.
As I said, the board was the perfect size, no need to replace it. I just removed the picture hanger on the back and it was a clean slate. I paint on the back of things all the time... like my wooden fan blade crafts. Christmas on the front, Halloween on the back.
I painted it using a foam brush.
Since I had some of the rooster wallpaper stickers left over from the first time I made this project, I just dug them out and stuck them onto the board. I added a coat of decoupage and the sign was ready to be hung up again.
I moved the picture hanger to the red side and placed it right back over the sink. The difference was dramatic and now I have a summer and a winter wooden rooster sign! Fabulous.
