City GPS Coordinates Sign

What a day! I took off work until Monday from my big girl job so I could knock out some house projects. I started today early at Lowes picking up some Sherwin Williams paint (yes they sell it there now!) for our master bedroom, which was a mess! Once upon a time I got a sudden urge to paint an accent wall navy blue, and that was a mistake to say the least. I love the color, but it just clashed so bad with everything in our room. So I am not sad to see that wall go! It’s now a beautiful light, bright Saxon Grey! Beyond relieved to knock that off our to-do list!

I also finished up another little DIY project today too. I love numbers. And obviously I love DIY signs. I’ve seen so many custom city signs, and those latitude/longitude signs and I just love them. I thought I’d create one of my own! I went to this awesome site where you can type in a city or an address and it will give you the exact coordinates! I loved how the GPS coordinates looked, and how they had such a special meaning considering this is the city we bought our first house in.  I cut some wood, and used the same trace method I did on my previous DIY Wood Shim Sign. I painted the numbers with just some white craft paint and then sanded over them once they were dry to give the faded, old look. I love love love how it turned out!


















So many more projects to do on my time off! Cannot wait to share!

    Hey, did you use primer underneath you added the saxon grey?

    • Reply Ashley Broviak August 20, 2015 at 12:36 am

      I get the paint that has the primer already in it, always has worked for me that way, and you don’t have to worry about too many coats!

    This is STUNNING!!!! I want to make one, but I don’t know where to start. Did you use a 2×4? Did you use a stencil? What size font did you use? I’m new to this stuff, and I have a TON of blank space on my walls. Thank you 🙂
