Well I’ll be darned.  The cows came home and they are mooing in my kitchen.

Okay, maybe they aren’t mooing, but they are in my kitchen.  How do you like our new DIY Dairy Farm Cow Sign?  Are you eyeing that cute little pink cow creamer next to it, too? (see details below)

Well, if you do like cows like me, I’m going to tell you how you can get both of these cow themed decor items in your kitchen pronto.  My post today is all part of the “Thrifty Style Team” so don’t forget to scroll all the way to the bottom for all of the Thrifty Team members articles.  All 8 of them are there waiting for you.

So, lets start off with the “Market Milk Cream Ye’ Olde Dairy Farm” rustic sign that I created myself.  It was incredibly easy and took minutes (I am not joking).  I used my friend Debbie Doo’s Farmhouse Cow stencil to paint it on a piece of left over wood from our DIY Sidelight Wood Shutters.

Debbie’s stencils are so incredibly easy to use.  They are also 100% American made and ship to your home quickly.  Look at how cute she is…

Dairy Farm Cow Sign Tutorial

After you figure out what you are going to paint your stencil on (think doors, stools, floors, cabinets, tables, or a spare stained piece of wood like me), tape the stencil in place using tape.  I used painters tape because it doesn’t stick to surfaces.  Then it’s ready to paint.

The best brush to use is a stencil brush because they are stiff and thick so you are able to “dab” the paint on.  Go easy with the paint and be sure to dab the excess off the brush onto a paper towel before you apply it over the stencil.

Go slow and light and apply from above not to the sides.  Don’t be scared, just do it.  Let it dry, or peak and show everyone in the house like I did.  It’s actually really exciting after you see it finished.

Debbie has several stencils available…which one is your favorite?

Last but not least, I found my little pink ceramic cow creamer at a vintage market in Northern Michigan while on vacation this Summer.  I’m collecting vintage “pink” decor and she fits in perfectly.  If you want a cow creamer you can find several varieties here: COW CREAMER.
