Farmers Market Sign – Repurposed Headboard

Last year I picked up several beautiful antique head and foot boards at the auction.  The were filthy and I was the only bidder, so I got them for just a few dollars.
I’ve been cleaning and clearing out some space to in my workshop, so I was finally able to pull out this headboard and work on it.

I cut the posts off of the sides, then painted it bright white, then put a coat of homemade mustard yellow chalk paint (my recipe for it HERE) over that.  Once dry I painted the Farmers Market words and arrow using a stencil I made and antique white chalk paint.

I distressed the sides so that all three layers would show through and lightly distressed over the rest.  I also did a small border of antique white around the edge, to highlight the outer edge.
