Weathered Beach Signs
Bring a little of that beach feeling into your home by making some rustic looking beach signs.
- 4 – 7” x 3” wood slats
- Flat paintbrush
- liner paintbrush
- Pattern for fonts
- Sandpaper preferably a handheld power sander
- Warm Beige
- Spa Blue
- Mint Julep Green
- Cool White
- font pattern
Paint wooden slats with Cool White paint.
Paint each slat with a different color (Flesh Ton, Spa Blue, Mint Julep Green and Buttermilk).
Use Word to create the words beach, surf, relax and sand or print out the pattern.
Place each word onto a slat and trace the words using a ball point pen or a stylus, pressing firmly so as to create indents in the wood slat underneath.
Use Cool White to paint the words.
Dip flat paintbrush into Cool White and wipe off all of the excess paint onto a paper towel. You want to create a dry brushed looked, so lightly paint streaks across the surface of the slat.
Sand the edges and lightly across the top of the slats to create a weathered look.
Spray with an acrylic matte sealer.
