These Farmhouse Bakery Antique Kitchen Signs have been on my list of things to do for such a long time. But since having my dad taken ill time sure has been a bit of an issue. Fortunately, I found a little window of time to complete them and share this project with you just in time for this months Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop.
Farmhouse Bakery Antiques Kitchen Signs
- Pine Timber.
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Picket Fence
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Beeswax Stick
- 120 grit sandpaper and sander
- Transfer Paper
- Americana Deco Art Lamp Black Paint
- No. 3 Round Brush
- Wax to seal
Step 1 – Using your beeswax stick rub over the entire piece of pine wood where you would like the wood to come through. Then give 2 coats of paint letting each coat dry in between.
Step 2 – Print out either Kitchen, Antiques or Bakery onto A4 paper (landscape) in your favourite font. I used Modern 20. Tape together so that it becomes one word. Be sure to make sure that the height of your letters isn’t bigger than the wood.
Step 3 – Place your transfer paper under you print out and begin tracing out the letters. Make sure that you don’t press too hard as this can bruise the wood.
Step 4 – Begin to block in the lettering with your black paint. Once dry apply another coat.
Step 5 – Once dry distress to your liking and then wax to seal.

Very pretty – you make these look so easy!
Thank you, Roseann! They truly aren’t hard! They are also very addictive LOL!
Interesting. I’ve never tried using wax on the wood to distress and now I’m curious to try this method. It looks like it has a more subtle effect than sanding over the paint.
Let me know how you get on Erlene! It’s a super fun technique to try!
I love making signs, but I have not tried this technique before. I pinned it for later!
Hope you have fun trying this technique out Cherryl! Let me know how you go! 🙂
