Reclaimed wood sign

Well, I did it. Can you believe it? I'm finished with my sign! It turned out great. We used reclaimed wood from Scott's Gramma's house. The wood is tongue and groove so it was easy to piece together. There is a perpendicular piece of wood on the back securing the pieces as well. I plan to hang it over my bed. Read more about the reason I chose the words here Using old scrapbook paper as my stencil, I cut the template using my Cricut. A sponge brush was all I needed for stenciling. I actually used leftover wall paint as my paint. It is Benjamin Moore shaker beige. I didn't want it to look at all perfect so I did a light coat.
