"Love the Beach" Weathered Sign

Purchase on Etsy

What You Will Need

1. Wood
2. Paint and brushes
3. Hemp
4. Sand Paper or Dremel Tool
5. Drill 

Step 1

Cut wood to about 12' x 7'.

Step 2

Sand until smooth.

Step 3

Paint half the board off white and the other half light blue.

Step 4

If you want the weathered look, sand over board again once paint has dried. Then go over with a set wash cloth dipped in a light brown paint.  Wipe clean so brown stains only the sanded parts.

Step 5

Drill two holes at the top of the board to put hemp string.

Step 6

Stencil on letters or hand paint, whichever look you prefer. If you want it to look weathered sand over the dried letters to give them a "scratchy" look.

Step 7

Paint over with Mod podge or spray with sealer.
