I saw the cutest hand-painted signs on my Instagram feed this week and instantly fell in love! I wanted to try to make some of my own and I think they turned out pretty cute.
I used some scrap wood for this one, white washed it and then used a pencil to draw on my design. I will be investing in some nicer paint brushes because the ones I have are not for something like this.
Nevertheless, I love the way this looks and can't wait to make more!
I made one for the porch and of course I had to makeover the porch. It is a work in progress but so far it is looking better!
It is a narrow porch so this is the only way to get a shot of it from the front. My vintage metal chairs need to be painted, I just have to decide which color to paint them.
I am going to get some new outdoor pillows and an outdoor rug for this area as well. One of these days we want to widen the porch and add an awning to it, but that might be a ways off.
Here is my porch sign. I used stir sticks to build the sign, then whitewashed it and painted it. New paintbrushes are a definite must in my near future!
I didn't have a table so I made one using a milk can and an old table top. It works perfectly for setting your drink on while you enjoy the front porch!
My vintage window frame is the perfect touch for my sign and vintage Homeco. candle sconces are on each side. I think they need to be painted as well and I might have to take apart a solar light to put in place of candles.
I can't wait to paint more signs and do some more work on my porch makeover!
