Being out in the garden is something I’m craving for right now because it’s winter time here in Australia. But that won’t stop me from making things with flowers and dreaming I’m out in the garden with the warm sun on my skin! Especially if it means joining a lovely group of my blogging pals for our Summer Living Blog Hop! Sharing how to make a Farmhouse Rose Garden Sign.

Summer means painting furniture outside, sipping on iced ginger beer until the sun goes down and BBQ’s for dinner because it’s too hot to eat inside!
Do you have a favourite thing you like to do in Summer?

Supplies needed:

Step 1 – Give the entire door a clean with TSP to remove any grime or dirt. Remove any door handles and the glass insert. Flip over your window and measure around your frame leaving a 1cm border to get the measurement that you need to cut out your backing piece from plywood. Measure it out on your plywood and then using your jigsaw cut out the back piece.

Distressing Time!

Step 3 – Distress both the backing and the door frame to your liking. Then using either your brad gun or staple gun nail the plywood to the back of your door frame. Then using watered down chocolate stain the back of the plywood. Let dry.

  1. This transfer DIY turned out beautifully! I love that you had those stems running down along the frame – genius! The transfer is so crisp and gorgeous, too. It’s the perfect addition to your space!

    1. Thank you so much, Jelica! We sure will enjoy it while it’s winter here! We are in a drought at the moment too so our winter garden is looking pretty sad!

    2. Oh wow I love it!! That looks fantastic!! I’m so sorry to hear about you and your family! You in my thoughts and prayers. You have a wonderful day 😊Lavenna Carey

  2. Sam, you always post the best tutorials! This one is absolutely beautiful! I know your heading into winter, so hopefully, this will give you hope that it will be summer again… 😉

  3. Just what I needed Sam. It’s really starting to get chilly down here in the South and our rose bushes are due for their Winter trim too. A rose garden sign like yours is sure to perk me up while we wait for Spring to come around again

  4. You’re the queen of paint and makeovers Sam!! Your rose garden sign turned out so pretty and oh wow, I totally forgot you’re heading into winter!! This sign will absolutely keep up the summer vibe though!!

  5. Sam,
    So sorry to hear about your losses – both your baby and your Mom. I hope your Dad is adjusting to his losses, too. Does he have a prosthesis yet? and he’s able to get around? God bless all of you.

    I like the transfer you did. I love anything with flowers on it, and the transfer on the green paint looks just like a glance out a summer window!

    1. Thank you so much, Barbara! Dads doing so well! He finally has a prosthesis which has given back some of his independence! He’s much more mobile than what he was a few months ago, that’s for sure!
      Thank you so much also for your very sweet words about the Sign too! It sure does feel like your glancing out a summer window xx
