I removed the hardware, filled in the holes where the hardware had been and sanded the doors.
Then I painted them white and hand rubbed an antique finish over the white.
I also painted the carved out edge with a black paint pen.
Then I began to design a DAIRY sign using my Silhouette Cameo to create stencils
from vinyl with adhesive backing.
Once I had all of the vinyl stencils created and adhered in place to the door,
I painted over them with black paint, waited for it to dry and peeled the stencils off.
I lightly distressed the entire sign, especially the edges,
to give it more of an aged look.
I was "winging" the design on the first sign
and decided to make the second sign basically the same design,
with a few changes.
I think I like the second design with just the cow and farm fresh
better than the first sign with the cow and the milk can.
...or the farm fresh sign better?
'til next time,
