Creating an Old Barn Wood Look From New Wood

Standard

Aging Wood Instantly – Country Design Style.

I am going to use the above idea for a wedding invitation sign I’m going to make.

But first I will distress my wood using this technique:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcN_HNbEpqw

I will use individual boards and attach them together in back to make a sign about 20″ x 16″ or so.

I will use my Silhouette Portrait machine to cut stencils that look like the lettering on the invitation,  enlarged to fit the size of the sign I create.

I can’t wait to try this!!!!

I have made wedding invitation signs before using canvas and they turned out well.

I can’t wait to make a “barn wood”  one as the original invitation looks like it is on barn wood.
