I have been admiring these simple Farmhouse signs on IG land for months. I also have been wanting to try my hand at creating vintage style signs with material around the homestead. The board I found was already painted white and was aged and dingy from being stacked up in our barn wood pile. All I needed to do was wipe it down and then cut it with my husband’s circular saw. Which by the way, is pretty “Fantastic!” (smile)
I’m sure there are 101 different ways to make these, but here is the simple method I decided to use. I found a font on my computer that I liked and increased the font size until I had the “right” look.
I printed the letters out and cut borders around the letters. I then took my pencil and traced the letters as hard as I could without breaking the tip of the pencil. The wood was not as soft as pine, so it took me several passes before it really made the outline I was looking for.

I cut the board and brought the sign inside and pulled out my Amy Howard Black Chalk Paint. Her products have easily become one of my favorites to use for my DIY farmhouse vintage signs and other projects around the farmhouse. You can most likely find the sample containers for cheaper at your local Ace Hardware store. It typically runs around $16 plus or minus with tax. Once I got my first sign out of the way, I was keeping my eye out for the next sign making project. It is just that fun! (smile)
Until next time, remember to keep it simple!
