Farmhouse Quilt Pattern Display Shelf

I made this rustic board mandala sign a few years back. Today I gave it a farmhouse makeover.

Originally, two scrap rough sawn boards were cut to the exact same size,

AND, then were attached with two thin slats and screws on the back.

Next, I pulled out a new stencil from Old Sign Stencils, Farmhouse Quilt.  I used it recently on a little stool HERE.

Besides Farmhouse Quilt, Old Sign Stencils has several other new pattern stencils including Retro Star, Retro Star LargePenny TileBarn Quilt Star, Pallet Stamps, Stitches, and Cable Knit.  Be sure and check out all of the new stencils!  These pattern stencils can be used on decor pieces AND furniture.

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

I painted just the top side of the sign with two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Paint In The Navy.

I then taped my Farmhouse Quilt stencil to the center of the sign.  I pounced on the pattern using Colonel Mustard and Driftwood Gray.  I moved the stencil up and down, and right and left to fill up the space.

Photo of two vintage cheese boxes.
I remembered that I purchased two rectangular cheese boxes at a flea market last July.  I found them in my shed.

The Cloverbloom cheese box had navy blue lettering! Perfect!

The top of the cheese box was screwed into the bottom 1/3 of the stenciled sign.  (Be careful attaching the cheese box.  The wood on the cheese boxes is very thin and brittle. Mine got a small crack in it by the screw, even after predrilling holes.)

I waxed the box and the paint with Dixie Belle's Big Mama's Butta.  The dry wood on the cheese box just sucked in the wax.

A sawtooth was added to the back for hanging, and I filled the cheese box with a rustic cutting board, slaw cutter and faux plant.

The result was very farmhouse!
