I was thinking about what to do with a left-over cabinet door we had from an old building display, and I decided that a vintage-looking coffee sign would be cute to hang in the kitchen.
I got so eager to start this project that I gave the door a coat of paint before I took a picture of it. After I sprayed it with Rustoleum's Heirloom White, I printed a cute coffee sign onto regular white copy paper.
I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge to the stick the paper onto, and smoothed it out. I find that it works best to wait until that dries before applying the top coats. After it was dry, I brushed a glaze on top and wiped it off until it looked aged. The glaze made the paper and the painted wood blend well so that it looks as though it were painted on.
Looking at this sign makes me want another cup of coffee. Since it's 7:00 p.m., I'd better break out the decaf!
