This $1 garage sale rolling pin inspired my latest project.
The rolling pins ends became hooks on a new kitchen sign.
Here's the new sign and HOW I DID IT:
1. I started with a pine board 11 1/2" x 24".
2. I base coated the board with Rustoleum Satin Paint in Canyon Black.
3. Next I painted on two coats of Annie Sloan in Country Grey.
4. I used the large size Self Rising Flour Stencil from Knick of Time.net.
5. I used black, white and tomato spice acrylic craft paint for the stencil I applied with a stencil brush.
6. I then distressed the sign with 100 grit sandpaper on the edges and 220 in the center.
7. After cutting the rolling pin with a chop saw, I painted the ends with the tomato spice paint and attached them to the back of the sign with screws.
8. Then I added sawtooths for hangers in each back corner and waxed the sign with Decoart Creme wax.
I love how it turned out!
