Signs On Our House

As I’ve said previously, almost all of my workshop is in storage.  This includes items to sell as well as tools.  Thankfully I kept back a few pre-made sign boards, just in case I might need them.

One of the blank boards was made with the pallet wood pieces horizontally glued together, similar to the one I made last year and seen here:

 and the other was one I made a bit larger and glued the boards vertically.

I painted the larger one green, since there is green trim at my new home.  I then found a nice font and using carbon paper to transfer to the wood, I painted our last name and the number of our house. This sign is now on the front of our house:

I did not distress that one but I did distress the smaller one, that is on the back of our house.  It is painted turquoise, then distressed and then stained on top of the paint:

  1. Julie, those signs are great! I'm glad you are finally in your new house and starting to think about the outside. I haven't gotten to much of the outside of mine yet…but this spring I will. I pinned your sign because I hope to make one for our new patio.

  2. Love your signs and really like the shape. Was it hard to get the shape using the pallet boards? I really like the turquoise color so much. I wanted to stop by and say thanks for stopping by and liking my Currier and Ives inspired hutch. I also love blue and white as you can see! Have a great night!

  3. Wow! I'm loving this sign. The shape is awesome – totally unique and eye catching. I'm glad you held some stuff back but can't wait for you to get your workshop up and running again.
