Here is today's project in the 31 Days of Simple Wood Project series.
I started with two pieces of 1x4 approximately 36" long and screws then together. If you don't have Kreg screws, you can always use those thin strips across the boards in a couple of spots and screw the boards together or a larger single board.
I grabbed an orange paint, turquoise, stain and drybrushed until I created a distressed look.
I used painters tape to create letters.
Drybrushed a white paint over the tape to create the letters.
If you aren't satisfied with the dry brushed letters, you can always age them a bit with a high grit sand paper, 200-300 range. Remember the higher the number the better for final phases of finishing. Don't use a 60 grit at this stage unless you want to completely remove the paint to start over.
And I hung over the kitchen window.
Ta da! Very simple and inexpensive wall art.
