DIY Arrow Sign

Back for another fun tutorial from the dining room reveal

There were so many fun DIY projects that went into getting the room ready and I love sharing all of them with you guys- especially since most of them were super simple!!

Remember the arrow sign that was hanging by the window in my dining room reveal? 
Well I'm sharing the quick tutorial for it today!!

I used my beloved weathered wood scraps again for my sign but any wood would work that you want to use!
You could stain it dark or do what I did and just sand down a piece of weathered wood for a gorgeous natural look.

Then just use painters tape to create your arrow shape.
I free-handed mine since the straight lines made it pretty simple. 

I used some white left-over paint for it and just sponged it on. 

Then just distress to your heart's content!!
I loved the wood grain that it brings out behind the paint when it's distressed.
I added a picture hanger to the top and then hung it up!!

How's that for some easy DIY art??

I"m talking just a few minutes and you have your own piece to hang up. 
I love that it could be used with so many color patterns and you could make yours big or small depending on the wall space you need to fill.

It'd be awesome to have varying lengths of wood and put up a few arrows together :)

So get creating!!

You know everyone needs a few more arrows in their life :) 

I'll be back tomorrow with another fun dining room tutorial so swing back around then. 
Happy Wednesday guys!!!
