The morning after a wind storm we awoke to our fence laying flat on the ground. Not the best news, but at least I had a whole bunch of distressed wood to make a few things. I wish I had patterns to tell you for these, but really I just got out the skill saw and drill and went to town with no real plan. Here’s what I did:
US flag: Wood split in half longways to make smaller pieces. I used barn red, navy, and off-white paint and made the vinyl wording and star stencil with my Silhouette.
Garden Table: I made this garden table as a gift for my cousin. I love how it matches her door! I did have to get some 2x4s for the base, only the top is wood from my fence.
“Be the Good”: This sign hangs in my kitchen. I love the message! Again, I made a stencil with vinyl, then painted it colors to match my decor.
Front Entry Sign: This hangs on my front porch. I love how it compliments the color of my house. I use the little knob to hang seasonal signs.
Frame: I tried something new with this, still deciding if I like it. I had a green distressed frame, so I made a pallet background for it to help it to stand out and make it look bigger. I covered it in Mod Podge (after washing with water) to give it a shiny look. I like how all the grain shows through, but not sure if I like the overall look. This is just a stock photo added in.
