Vintage Farmhouse Sign

I have been working on things  for the Vintage Market show.

As you know I am a bit eclectic with my taste .

I am planning on bringing  a variety of pieces including small furniture and vintage finds.

This was just an old piece of barn wood.

The patina on this piece was perfect for a vintage sign transformation.

I did a coat of Annie Sloan Louis blue and a thin wash of old white.

I sanded it down a bit and then traced letters using a font from word to this board.

The first thing that came to my head was hillside dairy farm with that date.

I really love this old finish don’t you?

I took a photo here with it above my cabinets.

This is one of those pieces I hate to part with.

This will be available at the Vintage Market.

I will be sharing more as I prepare for the market!

    Love that sign you made! I bet that will sell fast. I don’t blame you for not wanting to part with it. At least you can always make another one though if you need to. I look forward to seeing more things you’ll be selling. Wish I lived in your area so I could attend it.

    Wow Anne this sign is so great. I love it. I think it looks pretty wonderful about your cabinets. I can see where it would be hard to part with it. You will just have to make another one because I know this one will sell quickly.

    Just lovely Anne! I have been in a sign painting mood in the last few days… haven’t painted one yet, but there’s lots of ideas flowing. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Anne, that is a great piece of work. Before I read down I thought it was an old original sign. Someone will be sure to snatch it up. Wish it could be me..Happy Monday..Judy

    I love the sign, Anne! It’s got the perfect amount of aging to make it look authentically old. Somebody is going to love bringing that sign home!

    Love the sign. You did a wonderful job. Wish I lived closer I would enjoy to attend. But I live a long ways from your front door. Have a great time andi thewednesdaybaker

    Oh, I love it.
    I’ve been working on trying to make one too.
    Pinterest project I decided to try my hand at.
    I must admit, yours looks so much better than my attempt.
    I love the aged look on yours.
    Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Tam
