If you’re new around here, you may not know that I lost a tree in June 2011.
It busted up my privacy fence.
And yep, it fell on my house.
Last fall I dismantled just enough of the old fence to make a sign for the guest room.
Bushel and a Peck was the song I sang to Jamie as a child.
We’ve had some really great weather lately, so I decided to tackle the rest of the fence. Dismantling an old fence is NOT easy work. The nails used were very long and many of them were bent. I used a crowbar and a hammer.
See how hard I’ve been working? I wore my gloves out!
So, after getting all the nails out of the fence boards and cleaning them all off, I cut one end into an arrow and made a stencil with my CAMEO and some contact paper. I gathered some white latex paint and a Martha Stewart foam pouncer.
I painted, then peeled the contact paper off the board.
I added some jute for hanging, but it can easily be hidden if someone wants to nail the sign into a tree or to a post.
I also made a rustic “reception” sign.
Won’t these rustic wedding signs be perfect for an outdoor wedding?
With the arrows pointing the guests in the right direction?
I’ve put them in my booth and I am taking custom orders (until I run out of fence).
These signs and more available in MyRepurposedLife Etsy Store.
