Hi friends! I’m super excited to share with you guys this fun project. We are still working on our kitchen and dining nook makeover and this DIY “Gather” Wood Painted Sign was the perfect addition to the space we gather and share our meals in.
To create this project I went to The Home Depot and gathered my supplies. Here’s what I used:
11″ x 6′ pine board
ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Multi-Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2093EL
I used the new Marquee™ Paint in Cameo White (MQ3-32) and Schooner (MQ6-7) for this project. LOVE this shade of blue and the quality of the paint was great as well!
I started by using Wooster ® Pro 4 1/2″ x 3/8″ Woven Cage Frame Roller Assembly and gave the whole board a coat of the blue paint.
I let the board dry over night and then I used the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape. I used the .94″ ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Multi Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2093EL tape.
I pressed the tape along the edges firmly and then gave it one coat of the white paint with the Wooster® Pro 1″ Nylon Thin Angled Brush.
I let the paint dry about an hour and then pulled up the tape.
I did leave the inner tape in place so I could use it as a guideline for my letter placement.
I go old school when I paint signs. I picked a font I liked and printed it out in the largest size to fit in my space. I lined it up with the bottom inner tape and then used some more tape to hold each piece of paper in place.
I firmly traced the outline of each letter. The pine board is soft so it made a nice indentation, making painting much easier.
With a small paint brush I filled in each of the letters with the white paint. I let it dry about an hour.
Then with a permanent black marker I went around the outside edges of the white painted letters… I love how it makes them pop.
I love this addition to our family room and it’s perfect just in time for Thanksgiving as we gather with our families.
Making a sign like this takes a little bit of time but it’s not hard at all.
Thanks for stopping by friends!
