The making of a sign.


I have wanted one of these foreverrrrrr!


I drew one on a million pieces of ditto paper taped together.

(someone forgot to hide the butcher paper)

(someone had fun using all the butcher paper) Ha!



I traced/cut pattern on a piece of pine.


Sanded edges.


Painted hand using left over kitchen paint.


Drew pattern....again.


See.


Printed the word EAT on my computer.


Traced on wood.


See.


Finished painting and sanded the edges good.


Aged it up with some stain.


And hung it in my favorite " hanging spot"


Although you are blinded by the glare coming into my window,

it was a very cloudy day.



So I did something I never do.

I preach against it.

I forbid it in my house.

and yes..

I succumbed to temptation.

I used a Flash above.

(No haten' please.)

If you have been needing a sign forever too
just email me.
I would be happy to!
Susie~

  10. OHHH that sign is FLIP FLAPPIN FABULOUS!!! Every SINGLE time I go into an antique/thrift/junk store I look for an EAT sign. I HEART yours! If in the future I find wallspace in my wallspace-less kitchen, would you consider making it smaller?
