I purchased this country primitive Christmas "Believe" sign in burgundy with black base last weekend at a garage sale. I think it was 75 cents.
I first painted the sign with two coats of Decoart Chalky Paint in Old Lace.
I received the Old Sign Stencils at a reduced rate for promotion on my blog but all opinions on the stencils are my own.
I then distressed the lettering a bit more and coated the whole project with Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil that I purchased from Amazon. I find the Hemp Oil easier to use than chalk paint wax.
So don't overlook any tired old signs at the garage sale or thrift shop! They can be a perfect candidate for a makeover!
