This project is one of my favorites and was so fun and easy to make. I made a wood monogram sign with something unexpected – wood joiner biscuits! I spotted them in my husband’s woodworking stash and loved their leafy, feathery shape. I used lots of colors from Country Chic Paints to create my breezy letter S wood monogram sign.

- Coarse sandpaper
- Country Chic Paints All in One Home Decor and Furniture Paints (I used Cherry Blossom (pink), Midnight Sky (blue), Tropical Cocktail (turquoise), and Perfection (purple)

Arrange your wood joiner biscuits into your desired letter. Snap a photo to replicate it!
If necessary, sand the imprint on the wood joiner biscuits to smooth them out. If you’re using multiple colors, divide up the joiner biscuits into groups and paint them. I think I did two coats of each color.
I painted the wood piece with the white paint, then when that dried, I used a lint-free cloth to spread on a thin layer of antiquing wax. I wanted to do a faux aged finish so I just swept the antiquing wax all over. If there were spots that were too dark, I just went over it with the clear wax and it erased the dark wax.
Now to attach the painted wood biscuits. Referring to the photo I took in the first step, I arranged my wood biscuits onto my painted board. Then I lifted up each one and hot glued them to the board.
All done with my wood mongram sign. I love the breezy, feathery look! And the colors are so vibrant. I also love the touch of metallic gold.
I originally created this project for the Country Chic Paints blog. Stay tuned for more projects from me, using their beautiful paints! Can’t wait to show you what I’m working on!
