Magnolia House Style Kitchen Sign

If you could go on a one-night getaway, where would it be?  I can answer that in two words … Magnolia House.

I could happily just stand in front of it and stare at the front porch and gabled roof for days.

Magnolia House

Can you imagine hanging out in the living area surrounded by shiplap walls, or eating breakfast in the charming breakfast nook?  If you haven’t seen it, click here and you’ll see why I love it.

At $700 a night, it’s just a dream.  But in some ways it’s a bargain.  The $700 is to rent the entire property – not just one room.  The occupancy is for up to 8 people.  So if I found 7 friends to split the cost with, it would only be under $90 for each of us!  That makes it sound like a bargain, doesn’t it? 🙂

Yesterday I finished a Magnolia House inspired sign for my kitchen that is perfect with a capital “P” for the room and on my freshly painted walls.

My walls aren’t shiplap.  They are tongue & groove pine planks painted white, but I love them.

I also love Magnolia Market signs, but my favorite one costs $175, which is way out of my budget.

I knew I could make my own version easily and for a fraction of the cost.

I wasn’t trying to make my sign look just identical to theirs.  I wanted the same verse and similar trim on mine, but I used a totally different font.

I used my Silhouette to create a stencil of the image above (which you are welcome to use to make your own sign). If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can also print the words on paper in any font you like, then transfer the design to wood and paint in the lines.

I didn’t take step-by-step photos, so this isn’t a full tutorial, but I am including a supply list and basic steps if you’d like to make your own Magnolia House style sign.

Supplies used: (affiliate links included for your convenience)

Silhouette Cameo (if you plan to make a stencil)

carbon tracing paper (if you plan to print the words and transfer them to wood)

1″ x 12″ x 4′ pine board

3/4″x 36″ poplar square dowel

cordless nail gun (to attach the cut dowel pieces as a frame)

black or dark gray paint

paint brush

stencil brush

wood stain


  1. Cut pine board to desired length and paint it white.
  2. Measure the length and height of the board and cut the square dowel into 4 pieces (2 for the length & 2 for the height).  Stain the pieces.
  3. Make a stencil or trace the words onto the board, then paint the lettering with black paint and let dry.
  4. Use nail gun to attach frame pieces.

Hang and enjoy!

Magnolia House inspired DIY farmhouse sign |

I haven’t shopped for things to list in my shop in quite a while, but I was near one of my favorite antique stores this week and found three antique wood and wire racks.

All three of them are available HERE.

They originally held tire tubes, but I think  they are perfect as herb and flower drying racks.  I’ve also used them as stencil organizers.  You can read the details and history about the company that they came from HERE.

  1. Love your sign and the saying is perfect for Thanksgiving. My question is what material did you use to cut the stencil? I have a Cricut so could do the same.

  2. Love your sign Angie … also love the hanging rack. Wish I had space for it.
    I gave you a link-back on my blog post today. Thanks for all you do and your inspiring ideas.

    • Thanks Audrey! I love the open shelves in our kitchen. The other two hold dishes and cups, but the one above my sign is just for decor, so I like to switch things up on it. Have a great weekend!

    Love it Angie! The saying is wonderful. I’m with you about staring at Magnolia House!!

  4. Love your sign, Angie.
    Oh yes. Wouldn’t it be fun to rent The Magnolia House? One night just wouldn’t be long enough; let’s make it a long weekend.

  5. JaneEllen Jones says

    Your sign is very meaningful as well as attractive. Wish you could show me how to use my Cricut. Being digitally challenged am hesitant to even try. Guess what I need is a hands on class, duh! I get so confused with digital stuff so don’t attempt it.
    Love idea of getting to stay at Magnolia House, love look of house but that’s still way over our budget.

    Enjoy your weekend

  6. Magnolia house looks like a dreamy place to stay, and I love your Magnolia-inspired sign. The verse you chose is a beautiful one, emphasizing the value of taking time to share a meal together with those we love. Sometimes we just don’t make the time. Thanks so much, Angie for linking up your posts with us at Vintage Charm 🙂
