Ahh!! I am home from my travels! And as you can imagine, I have a little catching up to do. And so much to tell you.
But honestly, I missed creating so much, I got right into it my first day home. Why hotels aren’t yet outfitted with workshops I do not know.
BUT… new towns come complete with antiques… so I’m showcasing one souvenir today that I picked up from Nevada!
And today, I ended up with a reclaimed wood old sign coffee station that would compliment any
coffeeaholic farmhouse kitchen decor.
Wanna see? It’s really cute! And so easy to make!
An old sign with a twist… on two planks instead of one!
But there’s also a reason I spaced out the boards… look close.
The gap allowed for S hooks so you could hang mugs. Or other stuff. But in my house, it’s mugs. Dunno
(coffee junkie) why…
So I threw together a little coffee station idea using my own National Brewers Coffee stencil, that is so easy to make, you’ll want 2! More coffee for all! mmm….
Here’s how I made it:
What I used
- National Coffee stencils from HERE
- reclaimed wood fence planks
- cordless drill, bits, screws
- miter saw
- How to make the reclaimed wood old sign coffee station
- acrylic craft paint
- stencil brush
- Clean two fence planks, (I pressure wash) then sand.
- Lay two small planks down each side, allowing for a small gap. Cut to size.
- Place small planks under large planks.
- Predrill holes on front, then screw boards together from front so the screws are visible for extra junk bling.
- Stencil on a design, add S hooks and mount to wall.
- Reward yourself with a… you know.
Here’s how the boards are structured.
The plans above took me nearly all day to draw, so don’t lose them now… 😉
I’d love to learn how to draw in a 3D program one day. One day…
From the top.
So they showed.
Washers added a little extra junk bling to otherwise plain drywall screws.
So if you EVER land a bucket of rusty washers, don’t bypass them. Ever.
Better than diamonds I say!
I still like diamonds though too… in case… of no idea what. Just playing it safe here.
The support boards were placed on the back so the sign projected off the wall to allow for the rusty S hooks.
I know. It’s weird, but I go to great lengths to think this stuff up so it’s new to me, and hopefully new to you.
The less math, the better, don’t you agree?
Because I split the sign onto two boards, I needed to separate the stencil design.
So I taped off parts of the stencil I decided not to use, in order for the lettering to be all nice and evenly spaced from the top and bottom on both planks.
My beloved trademark crate markings of black on wood won once again.
Sigh… there’s a whooooole lotta love goin’ on in this picture! 5 of my favorite things. Can you guess them all?
I’ll tell you (crate markings) at the end (rust) of the post (coffee) so you have time (reclaimed wood) to (old sign) guess.
I personally left the S hooks and wood untouched.
And just in case you were wondering what that Nevada souvenir plated drill handled toolbox is for…
