I love Shabby Chic decor, the pink/turquoise vintage rose covered anything is my favorite! I am head over heels for teapots, teacups and saucers….. oh, and cupcakes. I have collected tons of cutesy glassware over the last couple years. New and thrift store finds. I have wanted a shabby chic teacup/cupcake/bakery kitchen for a long time but have had trouble tying it all together. I wanted a handmade vintage feel while keeping it young and cute. This framed pallet bakery sign works perfectly!!!
I love making things! And this bakery sign was no exception. I had several ideas for a bakery sign… maybe cut out a rolling pin shape or spell Bakery on a fabric wall hanging display… but then I thought of a pallet sign because they are simple to make, but spiced up quite a bit. Now I prefer adding frames to my pallet signs!
This frame was from an old Kirkland’s collage picture that had a gray tree and was very pretty but before I got the opportunity to put my pictures in it the little girly girls busted the glass climbing behind the couch. Ugh.. Anyways… It was such a pretty barn wood style gray frame I couldn’t see it go to waste.So my husband who is way better at cutting angles than me, used a miter box with band saw to cut this once large square picture into the rectangular shape. Then I cut pallet wood a couple inches larger than the opening of the frame using my jig saw and screwed it directly into the back of the frame and painted the inside boards different shades of pink. I did that by using the same darker pink shade paint and adding different amounts of white to each one. The letters were purchased from Hobby Lobby as 5″ plain letters. They are painted white, and for now just glued on there. Since then I have been making the letters hold onto my projects using a brad nailer, which works great! After it was all put together and finished I attached D-hooks picture hangers on each side of the back cause pallet signs tend to be heavy!!
I have made another sign which sold very good at my craft shows that is made very similar! This bakery sign is perhaps one of my favorite decor pieces I have ever made. Excited to share more of my Shabby Chic kitchen decor soon!
