Our parents just renovated their kitchen. They spent nearly as much money as we make a year, lol! But having raised 9 kids and lived in the same house for 30+ years, they definitely earned it!! One of the upgrades were brand new, hand scraped, gorgeous dark wood floors. And molding…tall, luscious 8″ molding. Not even close to the yucky molding in my house…wah. So I snagged some of the scrap and wanted to make a sign for my living room/family room. But it was new wood…and if you’re a regular LJ reader, you know I don’t do new wood. I wanted my sign to look worn and authentic, the lettering to be on a piece of wood that looks like I found it outside and that it sat through many’a rainstorms…obv not here in dry AZ (; So here’s how to fake weathered wood by layering paint to get that awesome vintage, chippy look!
