After I got my wooden fish bundle made to hang on my picket fence.  I knew that my beach porch still needed more to feel complete.  I came across the idea for this sign that says beachaholic.  I just couldn’t help myself, I wish I lived closer to the beach. I decided to make my own take on the beachaholic sign.

I used a board that was 5″ by 20″ I painted the board a teal blue green color.   Next I cut an umbrella silhouette and the wording “beachaholic” out of white vinyl, using my personal cutting machine.  I kept the wording and the silhouette pretty simple.  After the board was dry, I sanded and distressed the board with a little white wash paint.  I wanted the sign to look weathered as if it had been hanging on a beach cottage!  When the board was completely dry  I centered and added the vinyl design and wording.

I added a layer of Mod Podge to seal the vinyl to the board.  While the Modge Podge was still wet  I sprinkle some decorative sand along the bottom of the board.

Last I stapled some jute on the back of the board so, that I could hang the sign from my picket fence!
