Many of you know I have an addiction for painting signs. I have actually put them on the back burner lately, but this week I painted 4. To be honest, I do not like to spend money on the materials I paint signs on. There is so much out there you can get for free, so why spend a dime. I came across 4 things this week to paint on, so I got right to it.
You saw my vintage ironing board I painted the other day. My father came across it for you guessed it, FREE!
The same day he gave me the ironing board, I found a shelf in their laundry room. He was going to throw it away so you can bet I took it. I'm psyched too because he found a few more he is going to give me. This became a "Country Cottage" sign.
Then Randy came home with some scrap plywood the other day from a job. There was no way this was going in the garbage.
One sign became "VINTAGE"...
...and the other one became "FRESH COFFEE"....
Here is a sign I shared a while back that I painted on an armoire lid that was on its last leg.
This was painted with side slats from the same armoire that was falling apart.
These were painted on cedar boards being torn off the walls of our home in the rooms we are gutting.
I could go on and on and on, but we want to end this post sometime tonight...LOL!! These are just a few ideas for large signs.
So look around your house, in you basement, garage, shed, or even in your yard. There is bound to be something you can paint a sign on. It is such a great way to hang inexpensive art with impact in your home.
UPDATE TO THIS POST. Since posting this I have received many questions asking where I get my stencils. I have since done a post sharing all of my stencil "secrets". You can view that HERE.
