I bought this cool sign for 3.99 over the summer at the Goodwill. I love the simple, rustic look of it. It's kind of "barn at the beach", which tends to fit my style.
I haven't hung it yet because it has awful black paint on the back that marks up any white wall it gets near. I need to repaint the back, but I'll leave the edges black.
It inspired me to make some signs of my own. I have recently become in touch with my crafty, creative side again, which I've truly missed.
While dog sitting last week, I walked the dog down the alley behind the house and discovered all of this wood stacked near the garbage cans. The dog's owners had rebuilt part of their fence and this was the tear down pile. I saw potential. I asked them if the pile was a giveaway and they said goodness YES, PLEASE!
I mostly picked out some shorter, flat planks that just cried out "make me into a sign!" I like the simplicity of the one of two word signs. I've got a good variety of paint. Now I need to round up some fun stencils.
Unbeknowest to me, some of my family members have also been collecting some wood to make signs, too! Creative minds think alike!? Looks like my family needs to schedule ourselves a sign making party........
