#PlywoodPretty Challenge Our Crafty Mom

I am positively giddy with excitement over today’s post! You all know I love to team up with bloggers to bring you fun DIY projects and decorating ideas that you can make yourself.

Today I’m teaming up with a very talented group of DIY bloggers for a #PlywoodPretty Challenge. How fun is that?

Of course there are different skill levels of projects included. But with tutorials for each you can definitely make all of these yourself.  

There are also some youtube videos included to make it even easier. Now you must understand why I am so excited. A huge thank you to  Remodelaholic for hosting this fun challenge.

Today is the kickoff to this #PlywoodPretty challenge at Remodelaholic which runs all through next week. Just look at these inspiring Plywood Projects:

Like so many of you, I fell in love with the show Fixer Upper. Joanna’s style of decorating just speaks to me. If you watch the show you will see she decorates almost every home with a farmhouse sign.

They are very large scale and usually white with black lettering. That is exactly what I wanted for my farmhouse sign.

This project came together so easily and I cannot believe I haven’t made one before, but rest assured I will be making more of these. Here is what I used:

Farmhouse Sign Supplies

I purchased the plywood and wood trim at the home supply store and they actually cut the pieces to size.

See what I mean about this being an easy project? The great thing about plywood is it is so inexpensive, as well as versatile.

This sign cost under $20 to make for everything. As soon as I picked up the wood I got to work giving the plywood two coats of the white paint letting it dry in between. 

I wanted it to be almost a white washed finish as I believe that adds to the farmhouse look. While that was drying I stained the trim.

Next I used stencils for the words that I wanted and filled them in with the sharpie paint pen. I plan to add a different saying on the back adding the trim as well so I can flip it over if I get tired of it.

I saw this sign at Hobby Lobby and plan to use this saying:

Finally, attach the trim with wood glue and finish nails.
