Lay your two fence boards side by side. Next you will be nailing two or three small rails accross both boards to connect them. Once this is done, flip it over and voila! You have a big beautiful slatted piece of artwork that is almost officially your new porch sign.
Now you need to decide if you want to stencil and paint the letters, order vinyl from your local vinyl vendor, ooooooor you can use little pieces of wood like mine!
These are 1×2’s and I had them sitting around from another project. They rang from 18” long to 6” long. I just decided how big I wanted my letters to be, and cut them to size. This part is really up to you because each sign you make from salvaged wood, will most likely be different. Have fun with this part. It doesn’t have to look perfect. My letters are far from perfect, and that’s just the way I like them!
Once everything was dry, I nailed them onto the front of my fence boards. I didn’t measure anything here. I just eyeballed it. Feel free to go with whichever method you are most comfortable with. You will need to take into account the length of nails you use so they do not go all the way through your wood (like mine did–oops).
I used the following supplies for my project.
