I already made a farmhouse sign from the reclaimed wood I got from a family barn in Georgia. I used the smaller piece I cut last time for this project.
I painted on a smeary mix of brown and black acrylics to cover up the red.
It soaked into the grain beautifully. I almost wanted to leave it like this!
I applied a crackle medium, warm white paint, and then used an oak gel stain to further distress the corners of the wood.
The paint and crackle medium worked beautifull with the old wood. For the letters, I used the same technique I did here and filled them in with "Tahiti Blue."
So to dispell the rest of winter's drear, I will dream of "mon jardin."
