Found this quote on Pinterest and knew it had to be in our house somewhere.  When finishing our $187 Boys Bathroom Makeover I was looking for cheap free artwork and thought I could somehow make this quote work as art. I considered painting it onto a canvas, but didn’t want to spend $30 on a large canvas.  But I did have lots of scrap pieces of wood leftover from the board and batten I had installed in that same bathroom.

 How to make your own rustic wooden sign

Cut your scrap wood pieces to the desired length (mine were different widths but that’s the look I was going for).  And take 3 smaller pieces of wood for the back braces.  To attach all the boards onto the back braces with the liquid nails that I was already using to attach the board and batten to the walls.  Warning Be careful not to use too much glue as it will squeeze out onto the front of the boards.  And this stuff does not come off!  I have a few spots on mine that drive me crazy every time I look at it.

Stain the front of the boards, I used some leftover “oak” stain.

Let it dry for 24 hours and use stencils to trace the letters onto the board with a pencil.  I found my stencils at A.C. Moore, and used 2 different fonts sizes (2″ Times New Roman and 1″ Times New Roman). Then the fun part- hand paint each of the letters. This took me a bit of time, but it’s a good sit-in-front-of-the t.v. kind of project.

To hang it I found 2 of these hangers and nailed them to the back.
