A Beach Sign

Create your own Beach Sign or any sign.

This DIY is easy!

Do people still say that?

Here’s My Sign?

Fifty years ago (or maybe last year) I went to a yard sale.

I saw five shelves leaning, how much?

One dollar, each? no for all.

I’ll take them 🙂

I printed off the word, in a font that I love.

I measured and taped it down.

I traced the outer edge of each letter.

Removed the paper, I painted between the lines.

Two coats.

Sanded the letters.

I coated the board with a matte poly,

added a hanger on the back and

thought about the beach.

It was easy, you can do it!

  1. Thank you for the tutorial. Love the sign. What is the font? I adore it too!!

  2. Did you use a hand sander or a vibrating power sander on the letters? What grit?

  3. Very awesome, easy tutorial! I have a few signs I want to make so I will be putting this into use! Thanks!!

  4. So very cute! I need to try making signs this way.

  5. Now why didn’t I think of that? What a clever EASY idea! Love it! Great job!

  6. Lovely! A sneak preview of a sign with a little bit of distressing will make me stop by someone’s blog any day : )

  8. Love it! I might just have to borrow this idea!!! Blessings, Tammy

  9. Love this sign. I think I bought some things at a yard sale 50 years ago (or really last year too) that I haven’t gotten around to redoing yet. Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Perfect for the season! I love the sea-worn feel to it. Have a great day today Debbie!

  11. That is a fun sign. Especially since I woke up to snow this morning. ahh I am impressed with the free hand painting. I would even have a hard time staying in the lines. Enjoy the sign and now I am going to dream of the beach.

  12. Well there’s my sign…… I need a sign.


    (how did you get it to trace on to the wood?)

  13. Nice job Deb! I love the weathered look of the wood too.

  17. That is such a great sign, Debbie! You did a nice job on it!

  18. It’s perfect, Debbie! Can’t believe you scored all that wood for a dollar. 🙂
