I was in a little store one day with my mom and there was a sign she had commented on about a porch. My parents love their porch time, so I decided to try to recreate my own porch sign for them. I started with sanding a piece of wood and painting it a light cream color. Then, I taped down the stencil letters. It took awhile to make them all fit and be straight, but this is what it looked like.
Then, I carefully painted over the stencils with green paint.
After taking off the stencils there were some areas that needed to be filled in. So, I took a small brush and made the lines as even and full as I could.
My parents loved their gift. Here is a picture of it hanging in their porch room.
