I found this barn door at a local salvage place for $20. It was perfect and even had a blue-ish paint on it!
I dry-brushed the door a creamy white.
I then stenciled one of my favorite quotes on the board. I used 3 inch stencil letters in a rustic font. Be careful of spacing when doing letters! Do a rough guess of where each word will be placed to make sure the quote is centered!
After the stenciling was complete, I sanded the whole door to distress the letters and the finish on the door. I also rubbed a brown glaze over the whole door.
Here is the finished product! I can't wait to hang this over the bed in my new room! When hanging something heavy over the bed, make sure to put any screws into studs!!
It was hard to get a good picture since the door is so large! Stay tuned for the revealing of my new room for a better picture of this sign!!
