Dont ask me how I came to own them, but I have two road signs in my garage. One is a Dead End sign, and is small and square and yellow. Somebody took some shots @ it with a BB gun, arounf the bottom corners. The other is a HUGE yeild sign, with nine bullet holes, prolly 22s, and it quite hideous. It still has lead in it, making it quite heavy.   What can i do with them?Huh? The obious thing would be to hang them on the wall, but i dont want my house lookin like a truck stop. Thanks in advance! Grin

could you make them into tables? the smaller one could be a little bedside or hallway table, and the big 'un could be a garden table... it'd be a great talking point at barbeques  Grin

I bet you could paint them but I'm not sure what to do with them after you do.
 
Maybe  you could use the Dead End one outside around Halloween.  You could sink it into the ground kinda like a grave stone as a joke.  Maybe buy some fake grave stones for around it.  Add some fake or real flowers and it's your own garden graveyard.

I have a friend who made a little rolling footstool out of a ONE WAY sign.
It is really cool! She drilled holes through all four corners and attached casters. She has it under her desk for her to rest her feet on while she computes! Smiley
I think that would be a cool idea for the Stop Sign.

I once picked one of those sings with an arrow, i drilled tow holes on top of it, and hanged it with cable form the ceilling pointing to the bathroom.... it was a wall hanging with an edge (or so I like to think)

As I'm thinking of things you could do, all that's going through my head is....are these things cuttable?

I was in a coffee shop today where they had a road sign hanging on the wall that they were using to stick magnets to.

It was a bus stop sign with those kids alphabet magnets sticking to it that spelled out "bus your own table."

So clever!
