Self Rising Flour Sign with Knick of Time Stencil!

March 12, 2016
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

 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!
