Here's Your Sign

Last year I had a buffet that had wonky doors.  In an effort to salvage the buffet, I took the doors off.

See how the doors didn't meet?
So I took the doors off.  You can see the rest of the buffet make-over here.

Well I took the doors and made signs out of them.
I started off by taping off the border and painting the panel of the door in Old White.

Then I cut stencils out of contact paper with my Silhouette.

I decided to paint the first sign by stenciling the letters.  
I painted them black

then removed the stencil.

The second was was stenciled in relief.  
I applied the letters to the white base, painted over them in red, then removed the letters to reveal the white below.

Both pieces were then topped with a coat of clear wax.
I'm so glad I was able to take a buffet that redeem her issues!

Pin It
