Fence and Sign

Sunshine when the forecast was rain, an afternoon just right for working on a new sign project. The green fence was a garage sale find, once covered with glued on flowers and a bird. I had to pry the decorations off then I used the green 'fence' as a backdrop for awhile. 

First job was finding a board for the sign (its near the green fence) - the piece of drawer was the right size. Sanded the edges, ends, top and bottom. 

Dry brushed ASCP Versailles Green on the fence.

Added some dry brushed ASCP Primer Red over the Versailles. When dry finished with a wipe of hemp oil.

I posted about the Farmers' Market sign before here, forgot to take pictures while I was making the new sign, followed the same sequence for the red sign as I did for the black.

Painted a light coat of ASCP Primer Red on the board and wiped some off with a damp cloth. The Farmers' Market sign (find it here) was stencilled with ASCP Simply White then I used ASCP Clear Wax and buffed.

About this time I needed some help from DH - attaching the sign to the fence - with rusty screws.

PS: I made 5 more signs so more to come.

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Joy - What a darling sign and love the green fence! Great job!


  2. Looking good Joy. Love the sign against the fence. I think I have that same style fence, but likely smaller. Now I know what I can do with it. You are really getting to be quite an expert with making signs. Always love to see what you do.

  3. Love your sign and fence! Turned out really cute. I like how you have the two different fonts.

  4. The great thing about this one is its versatility. You can use it for year round decor by changing out what you put on the little shelf. Flowers for spring, melons for summer, apples and gourds for fall, holly for winter. The possibilities are endless.

  5. Very cute! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  6. Joy that's so clever! Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frou-Frou. Will you join me again this week? Mimi xxx
