DIY Kitchen Coffee Sign

I decided to make a new sign for my kitchen.  It was originally going to go on the cabinets above the new range hood, but now I'm actually liking it on the counter instead.

 It was a very easy sign to make.  I painted a blank white canvas tan, then brushed dark brown around the edge to give it a shabby effect.  Then I simply printed off my wording and shaded the back with lead pencil.  I taped it in place and traced over the wording which left a pencil impression on the canvass underneath, which I then coloured in.




 We aren't big coffee drinkers, but I do like one first thing in the morning to kick start the day, so the sign is appropriate for us. :)  

And I think I'm falling in love with tulips too!  Must be an Easter thing. :)

  3. I love your hand painted sign. I have recently painted a few and have really enjoyed it. I am wanting to have a "coffee station" in our kitchen and I think your sign would be really cute.
