Recycled Wood Sign
As the weather get better the beach has been on my mind. When we lived in Hawaii, we had a favorite spot. This absolutely BEAUTIFUL beach called, Lanikai. We used to go grabbed sandwiches at our favorite Kalapawai Market, and then spend the day at the beach. I miss that place so much. Not because it’s the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen, but because of all the great memories.
Do you have a place like that?
I told you a few weeks ago that I was re-doing my powder room with a nautical them when I showed you those Sisal Rope Mirrors. Here’s another nautical inspired project.
I picked up this piece of scrap wood at my local ReStore. It was pretty nasty looking but nothing some sanding couldn’t fix up. I knew it was perfect for a recycled wood sign.
I sanded my board really well then stained it with Rust-Oleum’s Kona (I love the dark richness).
I made a stencil using my Silhouette Cameo and very lightly painted the letters white then distressed them slightly, then covered the whole board in finishing wax.
I don’t know when I’ll make the 2599 mile journey to Lanikai again but I most definitely have a piece of Lanikai in my home now.
Happy Friday my loves!
LOve it Chelsea! So cute. I may have to steal this idea for my son’s bedroom…..
I love this!!!! It’s so freaking cute! and I love the distressed look on it.

After growing up near the ocean & being so far from it now- I just really love all things beach. LOVE how this turned out.
Nice and rustic but beachy too – love your style!
Love this sign!! We used to live in a small town called Tofino where we would grab our coffee and head to the wide-open pacific ocean. The memories are the best part. I am a big fan of beachy cottagey design and look forward to checking out the rest of your blog – hopped over from Project Inspired.
So cute! Great job!
I love your style so so so much!!! Thank you for the great inspiration!!
