Vacation, Summer, Fun...create this bright wood decor with DIY Paint and a JRV Stencil

Updated: Jun 22, 2020

Summer is about sunshine, trips to the lake, and the sand in your toes; doesn't this just scream all of those sentiments? I love how the bright colors play off of the dark background.

Create bright fun vacation inspired wall decor with a jami ray vintage (JRV) stencil and chalk based paint.

It was so easy to make and in under an hour. I started with 3/4" sanded plywood cut to 12" by 16". I used DIY paint to blend the background reminiscent of the lake I visited as a child. I used all of my favorite DIY colors on this piece and with the right tools, you can too!


  • 12" by 16" 3/4" sanded, interior plywood

  • DIY Paint in Bohemian Blue, Mermaid Tale, Sea Glass, and Old 57 for the background

  • Jami Ray Vintage (JRV) "Vacation" stencil

  • DIY Paint in Hey Sailor, Salty Kiss, Fire Starter, Queen Bee, Liquid Sunshine, Bead Board, Old 57, Kissing Booth and Petticoat Pink

  • DIY Big Top Sealer (I took this picture before I sealed, oops)

Here is my YouTube video showing you exactly how to do this sign, including the blended background.

I hope you enjoyed watching this video and, as always, thank you! -- Lisa
