DIY Sign

I have been wanting to make a sign that was "southern looking" but also had our name on it.  I saw this tutorial and decided to give it a try.  I wanted something to do with our home and Matt came up with "homestead".  I bought a sample of Behr wood stain in "coffee".
 I put on 3 coats, pubbed some off and then repeated.
 I measured in inch on both top and bottom of my 4ft. piece of wood and then used chalk to write on the wood.  I decided on a simple font because I am not a good painter.
 As I painted I didn't mind if the letters were not all filled in because I was going to sand it a little anyway.
 Here is the finished product, waiting to be hung!
