Love Wood Sign

I love all the fun farmhouse signs that are everywhere right now. I’ve looked at so many and seriously could go broke if I bought all of them that I like. šŸ˜³Ā So I thought I’d try my hand at making a simple Lā¤ļøVE sign for Valentine’s Day with this cool stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. If you like to stamp, you need to check thisĀ company out! They have amazing stamps and haveĀ incredible sales all the time…I don’t think you’ll beĀ disappointed.Ā šŸ™‚

The stamps in this set are about 4-inches tall – perfect for making aĀ fun sign for your house. I used a scrap piece of wood to make my sign. It measures 15-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches and is 3/4 of an inch thick.Ā 

I painted the board with Home Decor Chalk Finish Paint in Maui Sand. After it was dry, I painted a thin coat of AmericanaĀ Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Lace, feathering it out to the edges so more of the gray paint is showing. Again, make sure theĀ paint is dry. Then I usedĀ Real Red Classic Ink from Stampin’ Up to stampĀ Lā¤ļøVEĀ on the board. The inkĀ didn’t come out as red as I thought it would, but I really like the soft pinkish color.

You could also use stencils instead of stamps to add the letters and heart to your sign.Ā I’m really happy with the way this turned out! I may even leave it out all year long.

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
