Fun with Signs…

I finally got a few more signs created…and the blocks!  Love the blocks!  And they are so easy.  The hardest part for me was cutting the wood – because I’m so scared of saws.  So I had to wait on the carpenter for that part.  Then I painted, sanded, distressed, and added lettering, then the poly finish…what do you think?!   And evidently I was in such a hurry I forgot how to spell Vintage…with the blocks – thank goodness that’s an easy fix – just move the blocks! :)

And here’s a sneak peak of my space at the La Vie En Rose Cottage Shop.

More signs to come!  I have some bead board that I’m dying to try…
Thanks for reading my blog!  I hope it inspires you to try something creative.  Happy crafting!
