How To Make A Modern Farmhouse Sign

You smitten with modern farmhouse style, but it’s difficult for you to make a decoration that reflects a farmhouse style because you’re not really clear of what it means by Modern Farmhouse Style. Here I have a modern farmhouse sign decoration that would explain it. A modern farmhouse it’s actually a mix of a modern style meets farmhouse style. A modern style is clean and sleek. And the easiest base color to show modern is white. In the other hand, farmhouse is more country or traditional, and often looking rustic. How can the two of them meets together? Of course through the simplicity of both style and practicality that modern and farmhouse is looking for.

Modern and farmhouse are both simple and practical, you can mix the farmhouse’s traditional and a little rustic look into a clean and sleek of modern. Like for example my simple clean white and sleek cut of garden sign meets the rustic hand painted framed lines. Humble words of “my garden” is also a mix of a laid-back farmhouse wording of “my” and a clean wording of “GARDEN”. So, basically I use modern canvas and painted it with farmhouse. Although this project is more to work on the styles, I will still share with you the simple technical tutorial on how to make a modern farmhouse sign.

Things To Prepare

Try to use anything you can find at home or things you can upcycle. A similar material will do to make this modern farmhouse “my garden” sign :

  • A white plank
  • Dark blue acrylic paint
  • Black marker

How To Make

By understanding the modern elements that you can mix together with farmhouse :

1 .Have a white plank to work as the Farmhouse sign. It can be any material. wooden, pvc, steel plate, anything. Cut the plank into your desired size, with rectangle shape.

2 .Next is to paint a very dark blue on the white plank by hand. Let it looked a bit rough on finishing, to get the rusty farmhouse charm. Let it dry.

3 .Write the words “My Garden” by using black marker. And you’re done!

Basically, once you understand what is farmhouse and what is modern style and how you combine the two styles to create modern farmhouse look, the rest is easy. Any modern farmhouse would be easy for you to make. If you like some farmhouse look, check out my DIY Farmhouse Upcycled Pot Holder.
