I Made My First “Farmhouse Sign”

I have been tinkering around with some small wood crafts and when my husband asked what I wanted for Christmas, my response? Power tools…

He did not disappoint. He bought me a Ryobi cordless power tool set. This set is perfect for what I do. I don’t do very heavy duty projects and I have issues with my wrists so I didn’t need heavy duty tools. I can handle these quite well. I’m so excited to make projects with these!

I made my first project, a farmhouse style sign for my office. I used a precut thin sheet of plywood and a 1×2 6ft board. I painted the sign and made the vinyl letters with my cricut. With my husband’s help, I have a few things to learn, I measured and cut the 1×2 board to fit around the plywood. I stained them after I cut them. Then I used my new Ryobi air strike brad nailer to attach the boards to the plywood. I stapled through the back. I added a little metal picture hanger and hung it up.

I love how it came out! It’s a perfect fit for the wall above my desk. I am on to my next project!
