I have a fun project today!
If you like a graphic and industrial style,
this sign is for you.
Everybody loves Popcorn and a Movie!
Made to be like a vintage brick wall sign
within a rich wood frame,
this would be great for a family room
or home movie theater.
It's large scale, 39.5" x 39.5"
will make a big impact on your wall.
So, begin with the brick panel.
Mine was about $24 from Menards.
I used 36" 1x4's for the frame.
Wear a mask when cutting the brick panel.
Here's a look at what the panel looks like sanded.
That would be a good effect on it's own,
but I wanted a gray and tan mix.
I used Provincial and Ebony stain to get a "reclaimed" wood look
on the frame.
After basing my brick with an off white,
I added some grays, tans, and creams.
Adhere the boards with power grab.
Flip and add screws and D rings to the back.
Yay - here's a template you can use.
Chalk or pencil transfer onto board.
Chip brush black, then you can refine edges if you want.
Transfer ticket pattern onto white center.
So it will look like this before it is sanded:
and like this after sanding:
I also put a semi-gloss sealer on the wood frame.
Wouldn't this be fun in a home theater area.
Simple, graphic, industrial.
I want to make a brick "coffee shop" sign now!
The fun thing about being able to make signs
is that they can be so personal to your space
and as large as you want.
Hope you try it!
