I love the buffalo check pattern, but never thought about painting it on home decor or even furniture. The pattern itself looked so complicated to me. Thank goodness for crafty talented friends like Tammy Graves with Rustic Orchard Home. In this video she showed me how easily paint a buffalo check pattern on a board using a painting technique without even taping it off. It’s a bit rustic but it still looks amazing and it will be the perfect addition for my front porch decor. A classic pattern that can be used through all four seasons.

I started my project with just a plain 1X10 6 ft board I purchased at a local hardware store. These boards are perfect for signs. I’ve made a few stand up signs for my front porch but never one that was just a pattern. Normally I would stencil words like welcome or hello on them. The look I was going for was just a pattern to accent my decor.
Classic Colors For Buffalo Check
The colors I chose for my project were the traditional colors of black and white. The buffalo check pattern appears to have three colors but mixing the black and white to make gray was easy and that saved me money! With Dixie Belle Paint you can custom mix your own colors. I LOVE that!
Adding the buffalo check painted board was the perfect backdrop for my front porch Fall decor and I can’t wait to see how my Christmas & Spring decor looks with it.
