The newest addition to my wall gallery is a Latitude & Longitude {HOME} sign.  I truly love anything that is personalized and I thought the coordinates of our home would be a great piece to add to my wall art collection (Don’t plan on swinging by to say hi, the coordinates have been altered for this post).

I found this piece of wood in the scrap pile at Home Depot — my favorite place! — and I had them cut it into 4 – 18″ long pieces.  I bought 2 different Varathane Wood Stains,  Weathered Gray and Ash, from Home Depot because I wasn’t sure which stain color I would like better.  Good thing I did! To get the coloring I wanted I wound up laying the two stains.

To apply the stain we used these handy wiping cloths. This particular stain dries in only 1 hour so we were able to get the whole project done quickly.  I would highly recommend wearing latex gloves any time you use stain.  It will dye your skin and is hard to get off (ask Kat, her glove leaked and her thumbs looked like weathered wood for days!).

Staining with a wiping cloth is easy, just dip the end of your wiping cloth in the stain, then apply it across the grain until the wood is saturated on top.  If you have any drips, make sure to wipe them before they set. Apply as many coats as needed to get the color you desire. We started with the weathered gray, but it seemed to have a blue tint to it, so after applying one coat we decided to add the ash over top. That did the trick!

After about a hour the stain was dry. I got my handy hot glue gun out and began to glue the pieces together. Yes, yes I know, we probably should have used wood glue, but seriously, is there anything hot glue can’t fix? I haven’t found it yet!

Next up it was time to add the coordinates. To get the latitude and longitude of your home or any location go to LATLONG.NET and just type in the address. Kat cut the latitude and longitude, as well as the word “Home”, out of black vinyl with her Silhouette Cameo and then we applied it to the boards.

This project isn’t only for “Home”. You can make this sign with the coordinates of any special place, the location of your wedding or favorite place to travel or where you first met the love of your life :). The possibilities are endless.
