Milk and Cream Co. Sign

I’m usually pretty happy if a project turns out close to what I’ve envisioned in my mind, but every once in awhile, a project turns out even better than I’d hoped.
This is one of those rare projects.

I was inspired by a Milk and Cream Co. image that I found on Pinterest.  I never could find determine who the original source of the image was, but I love the font and simple wording, and based on the concept, I made this wooden sign.

I knew eventually I would create a sign to look like the original.  I just needed the right things to work with.  Bringing home 50+ antique windows (I’ll tell you more about that later) and having a new Silhouette, meant I finally had what I needed, so I created a vinyl stencil, and painted the design on the glass.

I was thrilled with the results when I pulled the vinyl away.

Hope you have a Milk and Cream kind of day!

  1. Very nice, as usual, Angie. You are getting on really good with your Silhouette. I sure would like to have a Silhoutte so I could make professional looking signs. Need to find one on sale. Love the sign on the window, but my favorite is the one on wood.

  9. I suppose you guessed I’m pinning this. I have not done vinyl yet on an old window. I think I feel it coming on.

    This is so great. Love the old window and a great job on the lettering. Love this.

  12. I am fighting buying a Silhouette, but you keep posting such great projects with yours. This is so primitive and elegant.

  13. i love this project. it looks amazing!

  14. Wishing I’d bought a sillouette instead of my Cricut a couple years ago so I could download such fun. Will have to figure it out on the C to resemble yours. Growing up with a father owning a dairy I have to have one.

  15. Love,Love, Love!!!

  16. I really love it! I have an old window sitting on top of my to do pile of projects. Thanks for the inspiration! Stop by the enchanted oven for a visit!

  18. I think you need your own book or magazine and I am being totally serious! EVERYTHING you create is amazing!

  22. Sweet, Angie! Nicely done!

  23. Your sign is wonderful. I passed up windows 3 times in the past. Now that I want some, I will probably never get another offer.

  24. The original is cool and your take on it is terrific. Thank you for sharing it.

  25. I am trying this RIGHT NOW….I have been trying to figure out that dang trace function forever and this explained it better than anyone!! Thank you so much!

    i absolutely LOVE this! just wondering what brand ‘spray paint’ and ‘sealer’ you used. can’t wait to try this myself!

    • Cindy, It’s been awhile since I finished this project, so I don’t recall what brands I used, but I always buy my paints at Lowes, so it was probably Rustoleum.

  28. Love this! Any idea which font you used?

  29. Is this Milk and Cream stencil available for purchase? It’s SO ADORABLE!
