Custom Name Sign

This is one of my favorite projects!!  I made it for a friend who recently moved into their newly built home (my girls want to know why I didn’t make one for us).  

Since I’ve been playing with vinyl, this seemed like the perfect project.  

  I used a piece of 1×6, cut two pieces 20″ long.  Then attached them with pocket hole screws using my Kreg Jig .  The whole sign measures 11″ x 20.”

 
I stained the whole thing using Minwax Dark Walnut, cut stencils on the Cricut, painted the ‘C,’ once dry painted on the remain words, very lightly distressed, then sealed with several coats of Polycrilic.  

  
  This was a fun project – I like it when I can see them come together fairly quick.  I have orders for several more – how fun!!

Thanks for visiting!

About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
