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)

How cute are these? I was visiting my parents one day and I noticed these cute coasters they had. They’re a really good size (can hold a large cup) and have a good weight. I just loved them and wanted to get some for myself. I never got a chance to go look for some and she surprised me with my own set last week from Cracker Barrel! They go so well with my home decor and I’m loving them.

I found them for you and they’re on sale for 5.99/set! I’ve linked them down below. Happy shopping!
