Welcome to the Beach Sign

But first, let me remind you that this is a person from my hottest haul…

thrift store items before

Only two extra to go, then I’m off to shop for a bunch of new goodies. I could do that next week in the OBX, so continue to be tuned.

Skipped any of the makeovers? You can see them right right here:

Here’s how this signal started…

brown stained sign dated with fresh herbs

I cleaned it up, evenly sanded it, and then spray painted it with primer and then white flat spray paint.
I really did it a whilst again then acquired trapped on what form of sign I wished to make so it sat for a bit painted.

So I considered I’d just transfer my graphic on to the painted board working with carbon paper and then hand paint it in. So simple!

Yep, for absolutely sure, just appear how nicely that transferred.

Portray in that modest print on the base, not so a great deal. And no, I did not get a photograph of it mainly because I quickly knew hand portray
was not heading to perform.
It looked like a 5-year-outdated was painting it! haha
It’s SO a lot simpler to paint script than the flawlessly straight sort font like above.

In any case, so I sprayed it once more with white paint to deal with that up and allow it sit overnight.

So the first test was a bust. Let’s go with the Silhouette and lower out a stencil rather. Sure!

Welcome vinyl cutout

I experienced some white vinyl so grabbed that and cut it out.
Connected it to the painted board and then painted in the “stencil” I slice with black paint.

Yippee!! Just about finished!!


I pulled off the white vinyl and then bunches of the white paint from the board along with it. Boo!
You know I was about all set to throw in the towel…but wait, there’s additional. (haha)

No, I didn’t acquire a photo of it, I just scrapped the vinyl and immediately went to get the job done on fixing it…again.
This time I sanded the wood all the way down…painted a coat of my Extremely Grip, and permit it dry right away just before painting.

Then I made use of some of my white paint (as an alternative of dumb ole spray paint) to paint the board this time, 2 coats.

As soon as it was quite dry, I slice out an additional piece of vinyl. But just ahead of I connected it to the board I freaked out and believed, no, the white vinyl is pretty sticky. (even right after I attempted to unsticky it a bit) It is likely to pull the paint all over again, I just know it! (I don’t consider it would have this time truly but I was gunshy)

So, I slice it out once again making use of Speak to paper since that stuff is not around as sticky as my vinyl.

I connected it to my board …

Made sure it was pressed down really perfectly all over and rolled my black paint once again.

Yay, nearly performed, again!


black letters on white board bleedy looking

Noooooo. Ugh.

That is the rationale I don’t use get hold of paper generally. It is bleedy mainly because it is not all that sticky.
Darn it.

Properly, we are rolling with this one particular, I’m just heading to have to hand paint white all all over those people letters to get rid of the bleedy spots.

So that is what I did.

And now it is done…

I bet you are pondering about the signal, huh?
Yep, we have made the decision to dip our toes into leasing out our apartment. We are likely to lease to near close friends and family members very first and see what we consider.
We may open up it up to other people soon after that. Toddler actions, y’all. 🙂

I’ll share exactly where we are placing it more than on my Instagram tales when we get to the beach. Keep tuned!

Here’s a list of all the factors I used…
