Have you noticed how barn wood is popping up everywhere? I was at the, "Awful Waffle" the other day and my husband was asking me, "Why barn wood was on the wall." He often asks me this when he spots it and recently he's been asking me this a lot. It's kind of funny since I invented a wood stain that makes normal wood look like barn wood in minutes. I suppose it makes pupper's insides look like barn wood, too, since Beau dog drank a bunch of it while I wasn't looking. On his outsides he looks normal, on his insides, I bet he he's a smashing gray. Anyways, I made this [faux] barn wood sign, so that's the tute for today!
[2.] I waited until the wood was dry and then used Titebond Ultimate Wood Glue, a recommendation from a fellow crafter. She was right, this stuff is bomb, it works like a charm. In fact, I glue the edges of the wood together and there was no wobble once dry.
[3.] I did glue on the support pieces, but I doubt it was necessary with that glue!
Here's link to the faux chalkboard wallpaper post from a few months ago. I gave this little nook a quick and easy update and I think it added a ton of character to a formerly blank walkway. Now it feels like this little space can hold its own!
Just for fun, a close up of our sock monkey sitting below the new sign, and of course it's resting against the state pillow love I created 2 months ago. I initially made it without the red heart, like seen above, but it looked all wrong.
I've thought about selling this sign, but I'm not sure yet. You know when you've created something for yourself, it's as though you put part of yourself into the project. I know I am running out of space in this little condo, but I may want to see this guy around for awhile. What do you think?
