SIGNS

IMG_4313 (1)

I have been neglecting my blog. Having so many other things on the go it has been put to the side and waiting for me to get back to it.

One of the things that I have been doing is painting farmhouse signs.  I have discovered that I love doing these, they look great when completed.  I would like to stock pile these, selling some if requested but getting ready to do some sort of  market sales in the near future.  I would love to keep them all and hang them in my house but as I keep being reminded is that we do not  have the room for all of this stuff.  I have nine hanging in my kitchen and love the way they look.

I either, paint, stain, stencil,  salt wash, add some sort of top coat, rusty do – dads, chains or any other prop that will achieve the look I am after. I achieve some sort of master  piece.  Well, to me it is a master piece.  I have looked and looked and looked at different signs, techniques and styles.  I have found and very strongly feel, mine do stand along side with some of the ones that are done by the so called professionals.  I will shortly be posting some more, so please stop by and have look.

Look at some of these and tell me what you think.  If you should like to purchase one please contact me through my blog.

    Your signs are awesome. I appreciate the work that goes into them. I have never had good luck with stenciling. I recently bought a stencil and a new black Sharpie. I figured this would be foolproof. I stenciled ” give thanks” on an old, scrubbed bread board. It bled (like drips!) under the stencil; woulda made a good horror decor piece, Back to Dollar Tree decals!

      Thank you Cathy. I would say they are easy to do but I don’t think you would believe me. Really they are. Try utube for visual tutorials. If I can do them you can too. I just love doing them. I have just finished 11 in total. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. We have our Thanksgiving this weekend, so needless to say I have been a bit busy. Oh, just to let you know my signs are for sale if you are interested just contact me through this blog and I will be in touch privately. Thank you again. Baba

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I really needed to hear that today. Just in the process of opening up a store on the Etsy site. I now need all the luck I can get. It sure is a process. Thank you again
