Painted Wood Sign

I hope you are having a fantastic New Year so far. 
Things have been slowly getting back to normal around here and  I've finally caught up. 
Today I even had little time to do a small project.

There are so many cute wood signs  that have been posted in blogland and on Pinterest and I wanted to make one.

I knew exactly where I wanted to put the sign...in my Breakfast Room.

 Here's the before:


Mr. Fanatic had a leftover piece of 2 x 6 from another project he just finished up and it was perfect to make a sign with.
Here's what I made:


 Here's how it looks in the breakfast room:

This was such an easy project and I hope to make a few more.

Have a great week!

Pam

  20. Your sign looks great in the breakfast room. I love that you created something out of inspiration from other blogs/pinterest. I'm wanting to make a sign or two myself. You've encouraged me to get busy! I'd be flattered if you were to share at my Show & Tell party on Wednesdays. The party is at mrshinesclass.wordpress.com
