DIY Vintage Sign

My DIY vintage sign is complete. It just needs to go on the wall with a plant hanging from it.

Making a vintage sign is pretty easy

  • Step 1 – find an old board
  • Step 2 – sand it down and paint it in a bright colour
  • Step 3 – give it a light sand and paint in a less invasive colour
  • Step 3 – sand to show some base colour and some wood
  • Step 4 – paint on your chosen word
  • Step 5 – sand/distress some more

I’ve added an old hanging basket hanger too.
