are something different.
I did not buy anything this week though I did pick up a pile of windows, but you have seen stacks of those here.
So my favorite find of the week are the stencils I ordered from Funky Junk (Visit Funky Junk Interiors Old Sign Stencils HERE).
Featured today is the Farmer's Market sign stencil.
The stencil also includes the arrow.
I purchased another stencil I will use on a project for next week.
The stencils are designed to be used in a multitude of ways.
I bought nine pieces of heavy-duty flashing pieces at Vintage South on my recent Low Country Crawl. (Visit the Vintage South website HERE.)
I decided they would make perfect signs.
Yes, I do realize there are only eight pieces in the photo. The ninth would not fit.
This homemade greige paint has a base of Farragoz gesso.
I seal it in these containers and keep it in the refrigerator.
If you happen to visit, do NOT eat anything from the produce drawers.
No matter how appetizing it may look.
One slap-dash coat and they are done.
Rust shines right through.
Well, rust really does not do the "shine" thing.
Rust glowers in the background.
You know how to stencil so I won't go through the steps.
Personal opinion - I don't like the spaces on stenciled letters so I fill them in with a liner brush.
I used barn red for the Farmers'.
Here the signs sit waiting for two coats of a satin craft varnish.
Don't want any of the rust to fall off!

I did not add hangers to them.
I will let the customers decide to hang or to prop.
Someone passing by wanted to know if I was selling all my sedum.
