Easy Stenciled Wood Coffee Sign

Share this post

I am a coffee lover.  I’m especially partial to a fresh brewed cup first thing in the morning.  I can function without coffee, but I would rather not.  Getting the family ready and out the door is just easier after a cup of coffee.  I have a little coffee station in my kitchen with all our essentials, including this upcycled coffee mug holder.  This past week I made another wood coffee sign for my kitchen that sums up exactly how I feel about coffee.

I typically make my coffee in a regular old pot.  I have tried a Keurig but wasn’t a huge fan of the waste or the process.  Last month, on a whim, I bought a pour over brewer.  This simple little tool paired with a cone filter makes the most amazing cup of coffee!  I am not a coffee snob and didn’t think I’d be interested in something like this but Wow, seriously this little cone is so worth the $5 and few minutes it takes to make a cup.  If you love, or even just like, coffee.  Or if you want to try and break your coffee shop habit give this tool a try.  

On to the wood coffee sign!

I made this sign using my Silhouette and a few other materials.

I started with a 1×10 board and cut an 18″ piece.  I stained it using a dark saddle color and let it dry for just over 24 hours.  I find my stencils and paint adhere much better when the stain is completely dry.   

I designed my sign using Silhouette software.  I laid everything out on my computer then cut it out of ConTact paper.  I love using this for stencils, it sticks nicely and peels off easily leaving crisp lines.

I laid out my stencil on the wood then added a border using painters tape.  Then I used white craft paint and a sponge brush to finish this sign.  When using a sponge brush I use very little paint and an up and down motion so the paint does not bleed under the stencil.

Once the sign is fully painted I let it set for a few minutes then remove the stencil and let it fully dry.

This sign is going up in my kitchen near the coffee station.  I love what it adds to the room and how perfectly it sums up my love for coffee.

Are you using contact paper in the printer instead of copy paper

No I cut the contact paper with a Silhouette then stick that to the wood to paint around it. Hope that helps.
