Two Board Organic Coffee Stenciled Sign

April 08, 2021

I found two pieces of scrap wood in the garage.  One piece was 1" x 6" x 16 1/2" and the other 1" x 6" x 19".  

The boards were attached to each other using two Zinc Plated Steel Mending Braces, and I didn't center the boards.  One was longer on top and one was longer on the bottom.

I then stained the two boards with Varathane Aged Wood Accelerator.

It's a water based product and quite easy to use.

Different species of wood accept the aged wood accelerator in various shades of brown.  

These boards turned quite dark.  You can wipe off some of the stain while wet to lighten them up.

Next, I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Putty.  I used a foam brush and was careful to only apply paint to the top surface.

I didn't sand or distress the boards at all.

I left the sides dark brown, and unpainted.

I pulled out my new Organic Coffee stencil  from Old Sign Stencils, and taped it in the center of the two boards.

I swirled on the stencil with Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash and sealed the stencil with Dixie Belle Easy Peasy Spray Wax.

Masonry nails look vintage.

So here is my finished two board coffee sign!

My sign was inspired by this one created by Donna Williams of Old Sign Stencils and Funky Junk Interiors.

I never have reclaimed or barn wood on hand so I used what I had, and staggered the edges of my boards.

I hung enamelware cups on my masonry nails.

I didn't mind that part of the sign lettering is behind the cups.

I once again used Dixie Belle Putty on the sign to mimic burlap color, like a coffee sack.

  1. Very nice rustic sign coffee cup holder and love how you used masonry nails for the hooks. Perfect for a coffee bar!
