Rustic Bakery Sign for your Farmhouse style Kitchen

I love my bakery sign! I made this for our kitchen, above the stove & it really catches your eye when you walk in.

Bakery Sign

First I cut 5 boards to the same length and laid them out on long strapping boards. I nailed the strapping in, with a gap in between each. Then I painted all of the boards white.

I played around with the layout of my stencils to spell out bakery & once they were where I liked them, I taped them in place.

I used regular ol’ black craft paint (acrylic) (US) and an oval stencil brush (US) and blotted the black paint in.

While that dried, I typed up my design using Photoshop but you can also use Picmonkey. I reversed the image & then printed to transfer. You can also print normal and trace using carbon paper (US) & then paint on.

I printed these words separately to make them bigger & they went on a little crooked so thank goodness this sign was a personal project.

My inspiration came from this sign by FunkyJunk Interiors:

Hers is soooo beautiful! & she has a line of stencils (including this bakery one) that you can find by reading her post about it here: Fake It ’till Ya Make It With a DIY Shiplap Styled BAKERY Sign

Now that I see them both side by side I want to do another one, bigger and add some s hooks! ^_^
