WELCOME TO MY GARDEN SIGN

Seriously, doesn’t this look good?  I don’t receive many requests from the Mayor for a piece of my work, so when he told me he would like some sort of sign for his newly built garden area I jumped at the chance.  Asking what kind he would like, he said he didn’t care, just something he could hang up.  With some newly acquired stencils from Funky Junk, I showed  him what  I had in mind and he loved it.  Though it required a little participation on his part he didn’t seem to mind,  I needed him to find some hardware that was old and rusted.  He told me he didn’t have any but would make some.  We were in business.

First I took two boards and wiped them down.  Since they were already aged all I did was dry brushed them with Rustoleum Linen White until  I had the look I wanted,  After the paint was dried I applied Minwax Polycrylic for added durability against the elements.  All I needed the Mayor to do was to prepare and apply the hardware.

When all was done it looked great in his rustic garden work area.  I just love the way the whole area looks and fits in with the rest of the garden.

 

I love it.
