DIY Rustic Lake Sign
A couple of weeks ago we shared with you a tutorial on how to make a rustic American flag with grade stakes. You can see that post here. At that same time we were making other signs using the same grade stakes. This new sign uses less stakes and I made it for our vacation home at the lake. I’m so excited with how it turned out 🙂
- Grade stakes
- paint stirrers or shims
- base paint color
- black paint for lettering
- white paint for outlining
- Gorilla Glue
- Dark wax
Paint four pickets in the color of your choice…
At this point, I broke two paint stirrers in half. I used Gorilla Glue and placed them on a diagonal being sure not to use to much glue. When Gorilla Glue dries, it expands and takes on a life of its’ own – just trust me on this 🙂
When this paint dried, I then used white acrylic paint for outlining the letters…
I am thrilled with the rustic lake sign. It looks great on our vintage coffee table – which is really and handmade tool box. I was pleasantly surprised that the paint on the sign and the tool box matched – a total coincidence 🙂 Love when that happens.
