I found this perfectly lovely name sign at the Thrift Store for $2.99 PLUS 50% off. The problem was my last name isn’t Medina. So rather than use scrap wood to make a sign, I decided to makeover this one. For $1.50 you can’t go wrong! That is why I love thrifting so much. You never know what you will find. Wait until you see the Spring dishes I found for a Spring Tablescape coming up in a couple of weeks!
How To Make A Modern Sign From A Thrift Store Find
As my Craft Room has a pink and gold theme, I decided to go with a white base with gold lettering. First I gave the sign a good cleaning and then painted it with two coats of the premium paint, letting it dry in between coats. This premium paint has great coverage.
I probably could have gone with just one coat, but I wanted to ensure the wording did not show at all.
Next, I used lowercase stencils with the same gold metallic paint that was used throughout my craft room to stencil the words #blogger onto the sign.
This was a very simple project and for a couple of dollars you can’t beat it! I hung it up in the craft room so it is visible right when I walk in the room. It definitely makes me smile. I hope you will visit the other bloggers linked below. They always share the coolest projects! Enjoy!
