Say “Hello” To Some Barn Wood

Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email

I had some barn wood that I wanted to use for an entryway piece. I got a little inspiration from a Pinterest search and decided to go with it.

I had my husband put the boards together and cut them down to the size we needed.


Then, I cut a chevron pattern out of cardboard.


I traced the pattern on the boards with a pencil and then painted them white.


I took a left over board we had and dry-brushed it white.



I wrote the word “hello” on it with a pencil


Then, I painted it a few coats of yellow.


I screwed the “hello” board on the lower right hand corner of the barn boards.


We hung it on the wall as you enter our front door. I had the basket hanging in this spot previously so when we hung the barn board up, I thought the basket might be cute on it. I think it is a fun piece and adds a lot of character to a rather boring little entry!

    I LOVE this. You did a great job on it…. Did you tape off the lines for the chevron, or are you just able to paint “in the lines”? Because it looks great!

    • lindsayeidahl August 6, 2013 at 4:46 PM #

      I traced the line with pencil and then I painted it in with a brush. It takes a long time, but the outcome is so worth it. Thanks for your comment!
