This project took me four days start to finish but it goes great in my kitchen!  I love cooking with fresh herbs and spices so I wanted to do a “pallet” art sign in the subway style.  The sign was put together using 1×4’s by my hubby.  You can find the details on that in my DIY Rustic Wood Sign Art tutorial.  This sign is just one 1×4 wider.

I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to create all the stencils out of scrapbook paper.  I would randomly trace on a few words and then measure open spaces to fill them more precisely.  I trace everything on with a pen and then went over it all with a black Sharpie marker.  (Sorry about the lighting in some of the pics…I worked while I watched The Biggest Loser!)

When I got done, I sanded it lightly be hand with fine grit sandpaper and then applied two coats of  Minwax Polyshades in Pecan Gloss, allowing 24 hours to dry between each coat.  Then I painted in text by hand with a small paint brush using Martha Stewart’s Acrylic Paint in the color “Vanilla Bean” which is a great shade of brown.
