Faux Lake Sign Turned Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Décor

Hi guys! Boy is summer in full effect here…toddler, teenagers, babysitting, & junior all-star baseball practice/tournaments. Whew! Just a few weeks in and I’m exhausted lol!

I was out and about shopping this past weekend at one of my favorite discount stores. I spotted this lake house sign in the clearance area and would you believe it was marked down to .65 cents? I kid you not, I couldn’t believe it either. There was nothing wrong with it so I brought it home with me and figured I’d find somewhere for it.

I planned on a lake house theme for my sons room, but now he no longer wants that…teens, go figure!

So I have this sign and because the price was so low, they cannot take it back.  It got me thinking how else I could use it. I have been wanting a farmhouse sign to hang in my kitchen for sometime and I thought why don’t I just use this and paint over it…so I did!

I used some basic white craft paint and coated the board about 3 times until everything was covered.

After it was dry I used black acrylic craft paint and letter stencils I had on hand for the wording.

I let that dry for about an hour and added a black wash to it for the effect of dirty, weathered wood. (check out how I did it here)
