I was inspired by craftyAmanda's distressed EAT sign (http://www.craftsbyamanda.com/2010/11/distressed-eat-sign.html) to make a sign of my own. well kinda. My Parents had just finished building there new home and had a house warming party last sat. so I thought a handmade home sign would be a nice gift. Mine didn't turn out nearly as nice as craftyamanda's but I am happy with it and my parents loved it so that is all that matters.
on with the pictures
This is the board I started with. I actually stole it for the scrap pile from my dads house so it is the actual material used in the new house
finished product. I didn't have a Palmsander at the time so I hand sanded itm, I have since went out and bought a Palmsander lol. I also had to wing the letters cuz I don't have a Silhouette machine or a stencil.
So once again thanks craftyamanda you are a great inspiration!
