'Be the Good" Sign

There's a wall in my dining room that has been bare since we moved in.
I thought I wanted to make a cute EAT sign to put there,
but have never followed through with it.

Then I saw a sign that I just loved,
and decided that was exactly what needed to go in that space.

I went right to work making my own version.

I had to borrow some paint brushes from one of my daughters.
This teeny tiny one is what I used for the majority of the time.

It was taking forever!!

Then I asked my daughter if she was SURE that she didn't have anything bigger.

"Oh!", she said.
 "I thought you just wanted a little brush!".

That's not what I said at all!

She brought me a bigger brush,
and the rest of the painting was done in a flash!!

I just love my new sign!
It makes me smile every time I look in my dining room!

Patriotic Star Porch Decor

I'm short on patriotic decor,
so decided to pull out my wood and tools
and make myself something.

I was inspired by THIS PIN.
Here's my version.

Since I didn't have anything to make stars with, 
I went with what I did have, and used a circle dauber.
Polka dots are just as cute, in my humble opinion!

Such a fun piece to decorate with for Independence Day,
or to leave up year round!

I think it's found a permanent place on my porch :)

'Nice Matters' Reclaimed Wood Sign

While at my in-laws house the other day, 
I spotted this sign that we made 
and gifted to my Mother-in-law for Christmas.

Well....if I'm being completely honest,
it wasn't actually given to her until January.

But it's the thought that counts, right?

She had been looking for a sign to put in her house that said, 
"Nice Matters".

So we decided to make one for her.

Turned out pretty cute, if I must say so myself.

I love this saying,
and I love that she has it prominently displayed in her home.

Nice really DOES matter!

Reclaimed Wood Rooster Decor

When my sister-in-law and I first started our hobby with reclaimed wood,
I decided to make something I've wanted to put in my kitchen for a while now...
a rooster silhouette!

Isn't it cute?!

All I did was find a rooster silhouette online that I liked,
printed it out, traced around it, then hand-painted it on the wood.
After it dried I sanded over it to give it more of a distressed look,
then tied some jute around the wood to finish it off,

My rooster is one of my favorite decorations in the kitchen :)

Reclaimed Wood Signs

Just wanted to share a few more signs 
that my sister-in-law and I made 
for our boutique clear back in December.

We get most of our ideas from Pinterest,
but tweak them a little bit to put our spin on them.
Love how these bigger signs turned out!

This is our 'hello' banner sign. 
The idea behind this was that the banner could be changed out
with each season, or just left as is.
Isn't it darling?

The banner is a little crooked in the picture {drives me crazy}
but it doesn't really look like that in real life.
We found a burlap banner kit at a scrapbook store
and customized it by painting on the white polka dots.

This next sign is another one of my favorites.
THIS was the inspiration for ours,
but we customized the size and fonts used.

Here's a closer shot of the lights.  
It's hard to tell, but there's a light in the middle of the star too.

We took the winter off and haven't made anything since November.
Now that the weather is getting nicer and it's not so dang cold in my garage,
I think we'll be back at it before too long!
