Hand-Painted Signs~New Etsy Listings

Before Christmas I started working on repurposing two wooden cabinet doors that I had gotten from a garage sale last summer. The lady I bought them from said they were from a local bank that was doing a remodel and just throwing them away. She grabbed them because she didn't want to see them thrown away but didn't really have a plan for them. So she decided to offer them at her garage sale. I found them near the end of the day and she was willing to deal. She sold them to me half price and I brought them home with the intention of making them into signs.

Like I said, I started before Christmas but as I mentioned in my previous post, I got really busy during December and I didn't get them finished. So this week I decided to dust them off and finish them. They are now listed in my shop. I realize the one is 'off-season' but I went ahead and listed it in case someone is looking for decor for the next holiday season.

I used Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint for the door and craft paint for the lettering. I just printed the sign off and transferred it to the sign by tracing the letters over carbon paper. (No Silhouette Cameo needed!)

  1. Lovely! They are both beautiful!
    I like how you shared your font-transfer secret! I may do that with chalkboard lettering (chalk the back of paper or something). Worth a try ;). I miss your blogging, but I'll find you on FB ;).
