Made this sign the other day. I love of the little imperfections. It makes it look old, worn and homemade.
I didn't take a before photo but I made this from a thrift store sign that had a painted checkerboard on it. It was not my style so I painted the edges dark gray and the inside white. In order for my words to be black I had to add black paint then paint white over it once I put down my saying in vinyl letters. Before the paint dried I peeled the letters off.
Making signs this way is super easy to do. I'm always on the hunt for vinyl letters in the clearance section of the craft stores. What is your favorite way to make "saying" signs?
