A Sign And A Find

A couple of weeks ago I made this sign using an old cutting board.  I had previously painted the board black and used it when putting out hot dishes on the island or counter top.  When I ordered this French grain sack stencil, I was hoping it would be a good match for this board.

Over the past weekend, Pam and I took a trip to Alabama to visit our Dad.  I found this vintage baby scale at a cute little store in Haleyville.   I wasn't sure just where I was going to put it, but this spot caught my eye as soon as I brought it in from the car.

Love the colors and rust :)

When making my sign, I heavily distressed the paint, then waxed with clear and dark wax.  I added the burlap ribbon because I first thought about hanging it.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Robin,
    your sign is adorable! Love the burlap ribbon!
    Are you guys planning on being at the flea anytime soon?
