Rustic porch sign
Y'all. Can I just say that I love this porch sign! I mean,, I know I made it and all, but I am super happy with how it turned out! It is a gift for someone so I spent forever playing around with the words for it. I used a variety of Plaid Outdoor Paints to make it rustic looking.

All of my vinyl is from Styletech Craft. Black Polished Metal makes up the majority of the words but I also used Red and Blue Chrome to accent two of the words.

distressed wood
I painted each section of the sign with a base coat and let them all dry. Next up was sanding the edges a bit to give them a worn look. Last step was to add a little wash of a darker paint around the outer edges to give the sign a worn look.

Chrome vinyl
I used Cherry Chrome vinyl here, it is very shiny, but it isn't sparkly like the glitter vinyls.

Outdoor paints
Here I used the Blue Chrome - again it's shiny, but no glitter!

Here's another close up of the distressing on the edges of the boards. PS - I picked up this sign board pre-made! Find some like it here.
