The Barn & The Shed

I thought I would do a little #throwbackthrusday today...because I am thinking of my mom on her birthday! (happy birthday mom!! Love you!)

I'm throwing it all the way back to Christmas 2013 and to these crazy big signs I made for my parents...

custom made signs with vintage lettering on wood


On their property they have two buildings - The Barn

The Barn Custom sign - weathered gray wood and vintage inspired lettering

and The Shed

The Shed Custom sign - weathered gray stain and vintage lettering

They requested signs to differentiate the two (like FOREVER ago) and I finally figured out how to do them and what I wanted them to look like.

I decided on the look of an old general store sign.

We used four 6 ft cedar fence boards stained in Weathered Gray. (they ended up a tad under 6ft by the time you cut off the dog eared ends of the fence boards)
I then used my projector to get the lettering on and then painted the lettering in by hand. I chose not to seal them right away so they can weather naturally. Once they reach the desired weathered look, I can seal them with an outdoor varnish.

The Barn and The Shed Custom Signs

My parents loved them! 
 
What do you think? 
I think I need to make a big sign for my own house...maybe our last name? or one for Averie Lane Boutique?

If you are interested in a custom sign for your shop, business or home I'm for HIRE
I'm in the Boise, Idaho area if you are local, but shipping can be arranged as well!
