Old Rooster Coffee Co. Sign

I originally published this post a couple of months ago, but wanted to share it again...since it's one of my favorites!

I finally pulled out my Silhouette Portrait over the weekend to complete this little project I've been planning for weeks now. 



  I found this old chalkboard at Goodwill for $2.99 and placed it above my kitchen cabinets behind this shabby rooster and a chicken wire egg-basket.

 (No, my walls really aren't this color.... it's the camera.....)
  My original plan was to paint the word "EGGS" on the chalkboard but as a last minute change, I decided on
"Old Rooster Coffee Co." 
I got out my Silhouette Portrait and laid out my letters like this......
and cut my stencil on heavy cardstock.
I then lined up my stencils on the chalkboard and used an off white craft paint that I had on hand to create the sign.
When I pulled the paper off - I was left with this cute little sign.....
I love it!  And I especially love the $2.99 price tag.....
What do you think?
Sharing the love at these great parties!

  1. Love Love Love find at the Goodwill!!!!

  2. Wow! What a fabulous chalkboard and you found the perfect use for it! I love the way you arranged things above your cabinets. I wish you were here to help me. I've barely started to put a few things above mine and I never know if I have the right balance! You are good my friend! Happy weekend!

    1. You are SO sweet! It no longer looks like this up there.... I change things around A LOT!!! Years ago I remember wathcing Nate Berkus on Oprah (which is when I fell madly in love with him.....) and he said always decorate in groups of 3's or 5's (unless you are going for a completely symmetrical look) and it stuck... Objects just look better grouped in odd numbers!

  3. Very cute ... and you can't beat that price!
