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!
Absolutely love this idea! This was such an inspiring post, we featured you on our website and you can find the article here:
Keep up the good work!
What size is the font?
This is perfect! I am also needing to know the font size you used please!
Hi there, What size font did you use?
How wide did you cut your boards? Love this!!!!!!
The boards are 1x4s that I cut to 28.5 inches 🙂
what is the font Modern No 2 or 20?
It is Modern 20! 🙂
Thank you so much! This helped me tremendously. Love your signs!
Yay! So happy it helped! You are too kind!
I love this idea and can’t wait to get started! How did you secure this to the wall?
I’m so glad! I just used a few of sawtooth hangers on each end, you can find them at Walmart or any home improvement store! Super easy to attach! Hope this helps!
Love it!! What kind of wood did u use??
These are just basic 1×4’s you can find at Lowes or Home Depot!
What color stain did you use on the wood? It’s such a pretty color!!!! Want mine to look exactly like this!!!!
I always always always use Minwax Dark Walnut! Its my absolute favorite!
OMG! That’s the color of my hardwood floors in my house! I love it too! It’ll looks awesome on the coordinate signs! Thank you!
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 🙂
Live love love this sign! What stain did you use?
Love the GPS sign!!! Do you happen to remember the font you used for the coordinates? Thank you in advance!
Thank you! I believe the font I used was called “Modern No 2”. It worked great for this project! Hope this helps!
Hey, did you use primer underneath you added the saxon grey?
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!
I love this, so pretty!
