Kitchen Sign… All Finished!

What up??
Hope you guys are having a great weekend!!  This is birthday weekend for one of my little ladies so things are a bit crazy around here.  Not too crazy to sneak in this post though:-)
I showed you guys the beginning of my kitchen sign in my last post.  Here is how I finished it up…
After distressing all my letters my sign looked a bit like this.
I then took an 80 grit sanding block to all my edges like this.

Once I finished that, I added a line of dark walnut stain around the raw edges and wiped off my excess with an old cloth.  It’s a perfect touch to make it look just a bit older.
My final step was adding a sawtooth hanger to the back of the board and putting it on the wall.
What do you think??

Hope you like it!  It was a great piece to break up that big blank space I think.  We will start this month’s Shanty Silhouette sale on the 21st.  I will be back before then to show you a great new product.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!!

    Do you have full tutorial for this?
    I am a novice novice. Like a prequel to a novice and would love to make a similar sign. A tutorial or how to would be most appreciated! I love your blog and the photography! So pretty!
    Thanks

    absolutely love it, just did the kitchen and dining room floors with a rustic wide plank in honey oak and this would go fabulously in my re-done kitchen….

    This is SUCH a great idea to fill an 'empty' space — eye-catching enough but it doesn't 'scream' at you — love the colors!
