Built-in Bakery Sign

As I am sitting in the living room this morning, I hear Cody in the kitchen with the drill.  I go in there and he is taking off cupboard doors in the kitchen.  He just randomly decided that today would be the day we start on our kitchen makeover.  
After he got this section painted, he said that I needed to make a sign for this empty space.  Funny, I had been thinking the same thing for awhile now but I didn't want to do anything until we painted.  Clearly, now was the time to get it done! 
I went out to the garage to find my vintage stencils because I wanted to hand paint them and then distress them.  They actually fit perfectly in this spot so I didn't even have to tape them up to stay.   
I was going to use acrylic paint but had a fat Sharpie market that was even easier to use.  It definitely helped make my lines look nice and sharp. 
I then took a scuffing pad and scuffed up the letters to make them look nice and worn.  Some spots I scuffed down to the wood and some spots I just let a little paint come through. 
Using my Silhouette, I cut some black vinyl for the sides. Cody said his favorite part was the little stars.  My favorite part is the fact that we are finally getting my kitchen makeover started! 
This little preview makes me so happy!  My kitchen is going to look amazing when we get it all done.  Six cupboards down, 18 cupboards and 9 drawers to go!

This is really adorable. I have a thrift store painting I have set aside to change into a bakery sign exactly like this. You are definitely ahead of me though. I am just starting to design a kitchen refinishing. So much work.

I am going to follow you so that I can see how your kitchen turns out. Great job

Oh, my husband will just tear into projects just like that. One night I was going off to work and he took a sledge hammer and starting removing a wall. I left him with my two year old while he was doing that! It wasn't pleasing me too much. lol Great makeover. Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
