Hello again! Back so soon? Well, I am most delighted to see you! ;)
Today I have an absolutely useful sign turned hanger that you’ll probably be using all season long. I’m not sure about you, but in my household one of us always has wet clothes, bathing suits, towels and other random items that usually (let’s be honest!) end up on the floor of the porch. I’ve tried encouraging my follow roommates (aka. the daughter and the husband) that there are better locations for these items. However, here I am picking them up yet again!
Anybody else have this problem? Well, let me help you out and lets get started!
Beach Towel and Bathing Suit Rack
- pallet board sign (you can create whatever size you would like!)
- spray paint
1.) First things first, paint your pallet board. Create any size you would like! One board, two, three… four fish… wait. No fish!
2.) Create your stencil. You can also do this in a variety of ways. I use my Silhouette Cameo like it’s going out of style, but you can easily do this by using your own handwriting as a font, or even with a pre-made stencil you can buy at the store. Whatever floats your boat!
3.) After you’ve created your sign go ahead and tape it down (or whatever your preferred method may be!). Since I used my Cameo for this project I am using vinyl and transfer paper to allow it to stick to my sign while I paint it up.
4.) What’s my favorite spray paint to use for signs? Liquitex Professional Spray Paint. Why? Because it’s created for exterior use (think graffiti artists), and it has low fumes so I can use it indoors. I cannot speak highly enough about this brand!
5.) Then, spray your sign down. Remember: light, multiple coats are best!
6.) Remove all of your vinyl, and voila! Your sign is gorgeous!
7.) I absolutely love all my signs with a distressed finish! You can skip this step if you’re not a fan though.
8.) Then, cut as many branch “hangers” as you would like. Five was just enough for me, but whatever you’d prefer is also just fine!
9.) Next, drill holes in all of your branch pieces as well as where they will be located on your sign. It’ll just make screwing them in a hundred times easier.
I just love how simple and versatile it is! :)
Have a wonderful weekend :)
