I have been wanting to make a fun sign for my new home for awhile now. When I demoed a house for a client I kept some of the old oak wood flooring we were just going to throw away. This DIY Boho inspired wood sign was the perfect project to use it on!
- Wood – I used oak
- 3/4″ plywood
- Table saw
- Chop saw
- Jig Saw
- White paint
- Rapid Fuse
- 220 Grit Sandpaper
- Finish Nailer
How to Create a Boho Inspired Sign
Step 1- Cut down the plywood to be 36″ wide X 24″ tall.
Step 2 – Sand plywood lightly and paint it white.
Step 3 – Cut down wood (oak or pine suggested) to 1″ thick strips. I cut a few down to 1/2″ too for an added detail.
Step 4 – Lay out your sign. I put the wood in place and then traced on either side so I knew where they needed to go.
Step 5 – Cut the wood down so it hangs over the edge about an inch or more.
Step 6 – Use rapid fuse to glue the wood down and allow some time to dry.
Step 7 – Flip the sign over and use a jig saw to cut off the pieces that are hanging over.
Step 8 – Create a frame around the outside edge.
Tada you have a beautiful sign!! Feel free to paint it to match your room decor or leave natural wood as is. Either way is gorgeous!
