What a fun project this was! Beamer Falls Manor had a vision to turn an old headboard into a massive sign for the front of their property.
If you haven’t heard of Beamer Falls Manor, you should check them out on Facebook. They have SUCH a gorgeous property.
Here’s what we started with:
This beast did NOT want to take the paint. We started by spraying it with 3 cans of white, (Chalked, & Krylon) gave up and moved onto regular ol’ Rust-Oleum Origins white paint. (Which also took about 5 coats)
We finally got the entire headboard covered & looking good! We did a quick overall clear coat before moving onto the lettering.
Here’s where it got nerve-racking. ^_^ Trying to get the design big enough, centred and even.
If we thought getting one side of the lettering done straight was scary, we actually did both sides of this headboard with lettering.
Luckily, it went smoothly.
Graphic on, antiquing of the details done! 🙂
We’re so grateful that Beamer Falls Manor asked us to create their main sign for them. We feel blessed to be apart of their gorgeous manor.
We made a hanging sign for under the headboard with their website and number and hung it with eye hooks and twine. We used our dark finishing wax and paint for the dark details. (Working on a post for this technique) We finished it off with A TON of clear spray by Krylon.
I really love how this turned out.
