DIY Yard Sign Project

My husband wanted to purchase some yard signs to decorate our back yard, he looked online but we wanted some personalized signs.  He came to me and asked me if I could try to make some.   He said he could buy the wood and cut it himself 14045340_10205213384292803_2095486376_oand that all I had to do was paint them…   I said Piece of Cake!

We went to Home Depot and got everything we needed to get this done!

He got the wood and I took care of the selection of colors and brushes.

First you have to pick your colors. They have such a great selection!  I picked Beach Colors.  Take your time selecting colors so you don’t have to go back and do it all over again lol

Then you have to choose the brand of paint and I went with…   Yep Behr Premium Plus!   The colors looked great and I added Primer and Semi-Gloss to it for a better finish.  The quart size is the 14055570_10205242392297985_629555228_nsmallest they will sell you so you will have plenty of left over paint to mix and match in other projects!   And last you have to choose the brushes.   I chose the $.1.99 ones they are just fine

Note: If you are writing on your signs you need to buy a smaller brush.     Can’t wait show you how I did my sings.  Here is the video tutorial.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
