Hello friends, it’s time for our Thrift Store Decor Team Challenge. Every month my friends and I get together and makeover, reinvent, refresh…well you get the idea, a thrifty find! Please be sure to visit all the wonderful thrift store makeovers, links at the end of the post. I found this awesome piece of metal for $8, I actually bought two of them. I always think two or three of something is better than one. I looked at this for a few weeks and finally decided I would make a metal farmhouse sign. I like to spend time with my thrifty finds before I do anything with them…and I have a lot of them that I’m spending time with!

Thrift StoreHow to make this metal farmhouse sign

I used a couple of nails and hung my metal farmhouse sign in this sitting area in our kitchen. It fit perfectly!!

I used this metal and I think its from the top of a chicken feeder, but you could easily do this on a piece of barn wood or any kind of wood.

Here’s what I did to make the sign:

  1. Placed it on the floor and walked on it, to flatten it out a little, this is a very technical move.
  2. Measured and found the middle of the sign.
  3. Used a pencil and stencils to spell the word “Farmhouse”.
  4. With a small paintbrush and craft paint, I painted inside the lines (ok, maybe a few times outside the lines). Apply two coats of paint, if needed.
  5. After it dried, I sanded a few spots to distress the lettering.
  6. Hung it on the wall!

Lay the stencil letters out and make sure to center for the metal sign

Measure so your word is in the middle.

    1. What a great find, and I love your sign. It turned out really nice, and it looks Great hanging over the window! I have some regular stencils where you fill in the area with a stencil brush, which I guess could be used in the same way. But would like to have some of these as well. Seems like it would make it easier to center and space out the lettering.
