hand painted arrow sign

Kristi drug this 100 year old piece of barn wood home from her in-progress new build.  She stacked it in my yard so pretty much that means it’s free game right???  I mean, she may still hold a slight grudge when she did the same thing with her hand-me-down-crib-mattress turned bulletin board in my craft room.  Someone should tell her to stop leaving goodies in my yard (: So of course I painted it whilst she was grocery shopping one day…isn’t it cute?  I love this hand painted arrow sign, it’s a fun addition to my entryway and I painted 6 stripes on there to make it custom to the number of peeps who run around here all day.  Well, more like 20 peeps run around here all day so I should say 6 for the number of peeps who regularly sleep here…

Here’s the fun part, customizing!

  • Using painters tape, create a quick rectangle stencil about 1/4″ wide. 
  • Paint inside preferred color choices, 1 for each member of your family.
  • (I used “Shrimp”, “Blue Lagoon” and “Chick” Americana multi-surface acrylic paints.)
