Introduction: DIY: Primitives Sign
My brother got my mom one of these signs at JCPenny an another one at kohl's they cost him 50$ each and I thought I could make one that would have more sentimental value because I hade it Ii made this all out of scrap wood I found in my garage. No if the woo looked bad that's goo these signs are suppose to look old so bad wood is good. NOTE: ALWAYS USE EYE PROTECTION WHEN USEING HEAVY MACHINERY.

On this I won't tell measurements because you make the sign the size you want. Take a pice of wood like shown and make it thinner. If already thin cut it in half to make a base.
Take a small sheet of wood and glue it to the two prices of wood like the picture.
Glue clamp and let set over night
In the morning sand out any imperfections
Then take the bet sander and round the corners and the sides
Take spray enamel and spray the wood until all covered.
Once paint is dry stencil the words on that you want
Now take sand paper and make it look old because thats what the signs are suppose to be look old. if your wondering why i spelt that word on the sign wrong that's how he always spells it so I did it how he spelled it. (For my grandpa he's old lol)( Now I put &'s in there to plock what it says because some people might find it offensive)
Once your done it will be a lot more sentimental value to it because you made it and not bought it from the store.
