DIY Farmhouse Signs On the Workbench & In the Shop

In this post: DIY Farmhouse Signs

It’s been a few years since I’ve written “On the workbench” post.  Since Christmas is long over, I needed to restock my Etsy shop.

I also plan to start offering Chalk Couture local workshops, so I needed to make some sample projects.

There are three that I just completed, but I’ll be making more once I receive the new transfers I’m ordering from the Spring Catalog.

First up is a “have courage and be kind” sign on a small box frame.

I had already made one with green lettering that I gifted to my daughter-in-law.  I fell in love with it and wanted to make another in a spring color.

Wouldn’t it look sweet paired with a bird nest filled with eggs?

Box frames are inexpensive and the best thing is you can make signs on the front and back.

Next is my favorite sign of all.  I didn’t put anything on the front because I wanted to put my favorite design on the back.

Can you guess what it is?

If you guessed the vintage truck, you’re right!

It’s on a 9″x 12″ Box Frame and can hang on a wall or stand in a vignette.

You can make your own using supplies from my Chalk Site and you can make another sign on the white front.

The last sign didn’t start out as a sign.  I used a wood tray with rope handles.

The bottom made a great surface to chalk on.

I chose the Grandchildren transfer to put on it.

I left the handles on so it can still be used as a tray, but the buyer can cut them off if desired.  A clip was added to make it a photo display.
