Introduction: Wooden Kitchen Sign
I made a Rustic DIY Wooden Kitchen Sign using a quote that my wife found on Pinterest. I love how it turned out and it was really easy to make.
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different wood stain and paint techniques to get a rustic or farmhouse look. There are many different ways to achieve that, but I’ll share with you one of my favorite ways so far. I’ve also used an old skill saw blade to make a rough cut appearance on the wood. The method I used to stain and paint the wood could be applied to any furniture project. I built a shoe rack bench and mirror frame using the same technique. Leave a comment below if you have your own method of making wood look rustic.

Step 1: Cut the Boards
Take 1x3 boards and cut to provided dimensions in the cut list, or you could use your own dimensions.
Step 2: Sand the Rough Edges
Step 3: Create a Rough Cut Look
To make the board look like they had a rough cut, I used an old 6 ½” skill saw blade to do the trick. I’m sure there are other fancy ways of doing this, but that’s all I had available at the time. I used a 2” long bolt, nut and a washer to hold the blade in place. Then using a drill on lower RPM I placed the bolt against the board as a guide and moved across the board making the rough cut effect. In certain areas I had to go thru the boards few times until I got the desired look. After that, I ran thru the boards lightly with a sandpaper.
Step 4: Drill Pocket Holes and Attach Together
Step 5: Stain and Paint
Step 6: Print and Transfer Text to the Board
Step 7: Color in the Text
Now using a Black Oil Based Sharpie, color in the text.
Step 8: Hang on the Wall
On the back side of this kitchen sign, screw in two screws on both sides. I used 1 1/4" Pocket hole screws because they have a flat inside head. Make sure that the screws do not go all the way thru the board. Then run a thin wire from both screws. Hang this DIY Wooden Kitchen Sign on the wall. You’re done!
