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.
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!

I would also like ot know how you actually got the print onto the wood.It looks like you are using a fibre tip pen but that would not do the job.
Thank you for the tutorial. Love the sign. What is the font? I adore it too!!
Did you use a hand sander or a vibrating power sander on the letters? What grit?
For smaller items like a sign, I just used a medium grit sand paper…#80-#60
Very awesome, easy tutorial! I have a few signs I want to make so I will be putting this into use! Thanks!!
It’s so easy, you will get all your signs done 🙂
So very cute! I need to try making signs this way.
It looks great.
Now why didn’t I think of that? What a clever EASY idea! Love it! Great job!
Lovely! A sneak preview of a sign with a little bit of distressing will make me stop by someone’s blog any day : )
I’m over from At the Picket Fence and am so happy to be following! I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your blog!
Love it! I might just have to borrow this idea!!! Blessings, Tammy
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.
Perfect for the season! I love the sea-worn feel to it. Have a great day today Debbie!
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.
Well there’s my sign…… I need a sign.
(how did you get it to trace on to the wood?)
Debbie, you did a great job. It looks great.
Nice job Deb! I love the weathered look of the wood too.
CUTE sign my friend! We cut a lot of wood today for some sings, so thanks for the info.
No, i don’t think people still say that, but we all want to go to the Beach. (BTW- was that jeff foxworthy?) Cute “beachy”sign!
It’s perfect, Debbie! Can’t believe you scored all that wood for a dollar. 🙂
Love, love, love it! What an easy way to make a sign too! I usually go through the pain in the tail of using my Cricut…which uses my vinyl…thanks for the info!
That is such a great sign, Debbie! You did a nice job on it!
Very cute, Debbie. I like the font you used.
Girl – you had me at easy! That’s my kind of project!
Now, I’m dreaming of the beach!
Very cute, Debbie!
so cute!! I wish it were summer.
