Shiplap styled BAKERY kitchen sign

I dream of a farmhouse kitchen, filled with the Heavenly scent of fresh, homemade baking. It reminds me of my Grandma’s house. She made homemade bread nearly every single day. Best stuff ever.

My mom was an avid baker too! She’d make something special every single Saturday night, usually her delicious crumb cake. Great memory!

So… what happened to me?

I guess I’d just rather make decor for it than actually do it… so BAKERY it is! 🙂

The big, bold letters on a soft curve offer lots of vintage PUNCH, with the subtext continuing your BAKERY story.

BAKERY is part of Funky Junk’s Old Sign Stencils! 

It mixes and matches with LUNCH (sold separately), creating 6 different design options! How fun is that? I love adding more value to these designs!

Or, purchase them both at the same time, and receive a discount!

So… with Christmas over, I was needing a replacement for the hot cocoa tray I had hanging here over Christmas.

I think during winter, we ought to be stocking our pantries with delicious home baked goods while the snow is blowing.

No snow… no baking here though. But hey, I can pretend like the best of them. 🙂

So… let’s make this fun BAKERY sign, rustic shiplap style!

How to make this shiplap styled BAKERY kitchen sign

1. Lay out boards to get a feel for your design. Cut length as desired.

* wood had been pressure washed, sanded, and repainted prior

2. Arrange the boards with small gaps, then stencil.

3. Attach boards directly to wall with screws.

* If you wish to hang S hooks like I have, install a support board on your wall first, so there is a gap between the sign boards and the wall.

4. Decorate!

Using a very dry stencil brush, black acrylic craft paint was tapped on with a very dry stencil brush.

Tip: After loading your brush with paint, remove most off with a cloth or paper. Test, tapping the back of your hand. If there’s barely any paint that comes off, you’re ready to stencil.

A perfect fit!

I went with a very, old chippy look, but those boards sure would look sweet painted a fresh white too. 

Now I want… two. 🙂

Which is easy to do with stencils, thank goodness!

Well now, with that spankin’ new Bakery sign boasting that I actually bake, I needed to prep the kitchen for that!

So I warmed up the kitchen a bit with a crock holding wooden spoons and a little vintage scale holding the coarse cooking salt.

The right side of the counter lost the red bench coffee station, but gained a cute crate for added space instead.

Anything for my beloved coffee.

This little crate is my FAV! I love using crates or benches in this area to create more space.

  1. Love the new stencil! I love to bake and do it a lot and now I look forward to purchasing your new stencil in the near future and putting the design in my kitchen. Cool! My new love is stencils. I have so much designing and stenciling signs. I have a thing for words. Thanks Donna!

  2. I’m both! I bake a lot. I like to have tea in the afternoon, so I need something delicious (cookies, mini tarts, cake, cupcakes, scones, etc.) to go with it.

    I really like your sign! Thanks for the tutorial….

  3. I love to bake and would love it even more in that kitchen! After the big renovation the kitchen just went through I am getting antsy to do some decorating and that sign is just too cute! Now you have lots of ideas spinning through my foggy brain…..

  4. I love your new sign! I ordered some stencils from you to make some Christmas presents…they were a real hit for the coffee lovers and the hot chocolate lover on my list. You can check them out on my blog if you like. Always find something interesting at Funky Junk!!

  5. I love this sign and where you placed it. I immediately pinned it, determined to make one for my own kitchen. I just went in to make some tea and I noticed my stove – my range has the knobs on a raised panel at the back! No room for your great sign. 🙁
    Duh!!!

  6. Your kitchen would be beautiful painted white. Yes, bottom half left wood finish. I had a white kitchen with butcher block countertops, the cabinets were mohogany painted white. I really miss my white kitchen. White cabinets look beautiful next to dark granite. Go for it!

  7. So, Weird question, what are your floors in your kitchen?? We’re building our house in a few months, and i love your cabinets and the dark counters, but the flooring has made stumped!

    • Hi Jessica! I have the same hardwood floors in my kitchen as in the rest of my home. They were purchased prefinished from Costco several years ago. I really love the streamlined look, and they function very well!

  8. New to the site and I am loving it! Newlywed and first-time homeowner here. I am dying to know where your cabinet and drawer pulls came from. Or even what to call the finish — gunmetal? Metallic antique black?

    Your range/microwave pic looks JUST like my kitchen and I’m dying to make this sign and change our knobs to get the vintage-y farmhouse feel. Any help is great, thanks!

    • Hi Patricia!

      I just wipe them down from time to time. If you were to seal them with a top coat of some sort, that would make it even easier. One I really love these days is Fusion Mineral Paint’s Tough Coat. No odour and water based! Brilliant stuff.

    • Hi Sharon! I create to inspire others to also create. I do sell the stencils however do not sell ready made items. If you search any social media with #oldsignstencils you will find plenty that create with my stencils that sell. You can also check with any Fusion Mineral Paint merchant to see if they may make you one!
