A Farm Supply Window Sign & A Fall Covered Patio

September 23, 2019
 I found this old window recently for $5 at a local antiques and consignment shop.

I can't pass up a red window or even a red window screen!

This new Farm Supply Stencil from *Old Sign Stencils is right up my alley, since I decorate with farmhouse style, both inside and out!

All prices on the Old Sign Stencils's website are listed in Canadian currency, but there is a handy conversion link for your convenience.

*Old Sign Stencils provided me with complimentary samples. All opinions about these fabulous stencils are my own.

 The new stencil is for a rectangular sign, but I placed half of it on the top window pane and half on the bottom pane.

"Supply" just fit width wise on the bottom pane.  I measured with a ruler to make sure "Supply" was centered, and then taped it down with blue painter's tape, upside down.  I will be stenciling the back of the window pane.

 When I stencil on glass, I choose either Fusion Mineral Paint or Ceramcoat Select MultiSurface Paint, and I use a natural bristle stencil brush.  I pounce the paint on glass.  No swirling. 

I used Fusion Mineral Paint Ash on this sign.  I applied three coats, allowing the stenciling to dry before adding another coat. I didn't move the stencil until all three coats had been applied in each area.

  Stenciling is very transparent on window glass unless you do several coats.  If you pick the window upright, you will see the lettering is very light after just one coat, and that more coats are needed.

In order to center the second row of stenciling under "Supply", I had to move the stencil to the left.

I used the bottom of the word "Supply" to line up the stencil.  Three coats were applied on this section of the stencil as well.

Next, I stenciled the top pane using the same procedure as for the bottom paint.

I added a couple of finishing nails to the outer sides of the window frame to hang garden tools.

I did not seal the stenciling.

I hung the "Farm Supply" window sign next to the door on my covered patio.

I just gathered a few pumpkins, along with some FARM SUPPLIES like a milk can, shovel, level, chicken feeder, cultivator wheel, jars, crocks, enamelware, a rake, a pulley, and oil cans.

My outdoor fall decor will all be put away on or before Halloween, as the weather can become winter-like in November!

  1. Happy First Day of Fall! Thanks for sharing your Autumn Covered Patio Decor; I always love to see how you decorate that space for the different seasons, & since our area is having a drought & 107 degree days still, I'm also living vicariously through you a bit, haha! All your recent Fall projects came together so well here; the new stenciled sign looks so cute on the red gate, & I love the pop of yellow in the oak leaf! That red window was meant to be yours; what a great find! Great job, as always, w/ making the stencil truly yours w/ your design placement. This makes me itch for cooler weather so I can decorate w/ pumpkins & celebrate all things Fall too. :)

    1. Thanks Miranda! I wasn't even going to decorate for fall this year. The sign gave me inspiration!

  2. Great Job, Carlene. I'm not surprised because everything you do comes out well. I, too, paint on the back of the window so it can be washed from the front, and the paint is protected. Love the red paint and the stencil. I'm a farm girl at heart!

  3. I love old farm junk too and your covered porch looks great!

  4. What a great find! Turned out great!

  5. What absolutely amazes me about your window projects is that they always look like they were meant to be that way. You have one of the best eyes in the industry, my friend! Thank-you for doing this stencil such justice! It's beautiful!

  6. Love the farmhouse vibe of your repurposed window and of course I'm swooning over the red (my favorite color).
