The inspiration for this easy farmhouse sign came from one of my favorite new books!
Check out the tutorial for it below.

The farmhouse look is so fun...it's something I've enjoyed for quite sometime. This sign adds that perfect little farmhouse touch to any space, especially a kitchen or dining area. The original project came from my friend, Liz's, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm book. It's chocked full of so many simple-to-complete, yet show-stopping, projects! I'm sharing the sign and the book below.

Liz and I have been bloggy friends for quite some time. I was honored to be a part of the bloggers helping her launch this gorgeous new book of hers. Y'all, it truly is INCREDIBLE (it's already in its second printing and just came out this month!). Click here to grab yours over on Amazon Prime.

This Milk & Cream sign caught my eye immediately. I put my own spin on it with the colors from our home in the sign I completed in this post. Liz's idea on this one was nothing short of genius...just grab a frame and remove all of the "stuff". All you need is the glass and frame itself. Grab one from a thrift shop and you're good to go.

This is just one of many, gorgeous farmhouse tutorials in the book.

 My sign loving-heart was in heaven flipping through the pages of A Touch of Farmhouse Charm. It's the perfect, budget-friendly how-to guide to get the farmhouse look with simple and beautiful projects (like hand-made signs...YAY!).

Here is how my Milk & Cream sign turned out.
I used the colors of my home for this one to put my own spin on it.
I also used my vinyl machine...because I'm super lazy and better with graphics than hand lettering. Liz's tutorial in the book is perfect...even if you don't have a vinyl machine!

I actually used a frame I already had on hand. I had used this one for our first-day-of-school photos...the green matched the printable I used, but nothing else inside my house. It was perfect to pull out and use for this easy farmhouse sign project. I removed all of the contents of the frame and did a simple coat of red chalk paint over the green.

After the chalk paint was dry, I used coarse sand paper to rough it up a bit.

If you use a vinyl machine like I did, one of my tips is to reverse your lettering. I applied mine to the backside of my sign. Since this will sit on my kitchen counter, chances are it will be exposed to splatters and grease and all that fun. I put the letters on the reverse side so they're somewhat protected. Then the glass front is plain and easy to clean.

I simply applied the vinyl to the glass and voila! Instant farmhouse charm, y'all.

This is just one of so many projects I can't wait to complete in this book!
