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!
