Home » farmhouse » Pottery Barn Knock Off Rustic Sign DIY Tutorial
I got a great opportunity to guest post over at Homebody Holly last week for her AMAZING Knock off Party!! Here is my knock off in case y’all missed it….a Pottery Barn Knock Off with my farmhouse twist…
I wanted more of a farmhouse look instead so I took some items I already had. An old coke crate without a bottom and a couple of barnwood signs I made last year.
I took a saw and cut off the front and back of the coke crate. I found some more barnwood pieces laying about and started laying out my plan on the deck…
I then took some Deco Art craft paints after those barnwood boards…
I use a dry brush paint technique on wood like this to give it a worn appearance without using sandpaper. Just dab a small amount of paint on your brush and then dab most of it off. Go back and forth on your wood in long, rapid strokes over a large area to make the paint stretch as far as possible.
I did one board in white, one in gray, and the third in a pale blue. You cannot buy rustic goodness like this in a store…
I then took another scrap board and nailed each of my signs to it. I nailed from the back so the nail heads were not visible on the front.
Then I just leaned mine against the house on the front porch. This one was 100% made by me! No hubby help with the tools! If I can do it, you can do it! And the grand total for my version…$0…FREE!!
I really love the rustic, farmhouse feel…
Seriously this was super easy! You can make your beach themed if you wish. Or come up with another theme for your rustic sign! Maybe a garden theme with words like grow, garden, spring, etc.
The beauty of these is the more weathered they get….the better they will look! Now that is my kind of outdoor decor!
A gorgeous rustic addition to any porch!
You are welcome at my cottage anytime! And you will be greeted at the door by this rustic, farmhouse knock-off!
