Keeping it Simple: Plywood Signs

Plywood Signs



You've probably seen these in various pictures on my blog.  There are in my kitchen on a bright yellow wall, and I love how they look.

 When I saw this idea, I knew that I wanted to do something like that in there.   It was so easy to do and it really makes a statement in my kitchen.  My motto for this house has been: Go bold or go home!
Plywood signs
This is how I made them:
I took some scrap plywood.  I actually got mine in the clearance section, they were $.51 each and I had to buy 2.  I cut the pieces into squares, so 21”x21”.

Then I painted the wood green and turquoise.

I cut out the design out of white vinyl.  I used 12x24 sheets of white vinyl and cut it on my 12x24 mat.

I put the vinyl onto the plywood.

To put the wood onto the wall, we actually just drilled a hole into the wood and then screwed it directly into the wall (instead of having to use wall mounts).  I used some wood filler and then painted over it.

And now I have some bold, bright and big signs for my kitchen!

I love that you just screwed them to the wall. No risk of them falling on little heads!
