A Big Sign

This has been on my to-do list for a very long time.   This is a top to an old wood box.  I bought it about 4 years ago at the Nashville Flea Market.  I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to use it for when I bought it.  It's been setting down by the barn ever since.  The good part is it has aged to a beautiful shade of grey.

Since I've been seeing through flea market eyes the last two weeks, everything looks like a potential project.

After using my new stencil, I sanded and waxed the wood.  I love how the wax brought out nice darker shades of grey in certain places.

I propped it up in front our fireplace on the porch so I could take pictures, but I'm thinking this would be a nice way to use it.   I'm going to take it to the Nashville Flea Market with us on Friday.  But if it doesn't sell, I  know where it's going :)

Thanks for stopping by!
