I ordered some vinyl from Utah Vinyl including the negative - I wanted to use it as a stencil. So I attached the vinyl to my painted block.
Then painted it with a couple coats of Sand colored craft paint.
Then I removed the vinyl and ended up with a cute block.
I could have left it like that, but I decided I wanted more of a weathered look. So I gave it a good sanding.
Now I have a cute little block to add to my Americana decor.
I'm hosting a craft night this Thursday and this is one of the projects we will be making.
