Bushel and a Peck Signs

The new sign I made for my Valentine’s Day front porch started it. I loved it so much that I couldn’t stop at just one. I made the one on my porch using a cupboard door, but I decided to use old wood from my wood pile to make more. I actually like the way they turned out even better. I didn’t have to stencil over any raised areas, making the printing look a lot neater.

The weather gave my husband a window of opportunity this last week so I gave him my measurements and he took care of cutting everything for me.

This is my pile of boards for the sign front…

…and these are for the back braces.

The signs took longer than normal to put together because I had to pull out a zillion staples… 🙁

After dry brushing the fronts…

…I used my stencil to create the magic.

I had quite the assembly line going on.

  1. Have to say, love the flat lumber sign much better. Am printing this out so will remember how you lined up the words for sign. Can’t believe have been doing it to make much harder for myself. You are such good example,thanks.
    I am so envious of your lumber stash, it’s fantastic. We don’t have anyplace to work in winter, no garage and no basement so any wood I want cut has to wait. By time Spring comes along idea has gone away. Love your big heart you made also Does your hubs cut those out for you also?
    Do you use your Cricut to make stencils? I have one now but have yet to try it, think am half scared of it, silly I know.
    Happy weekend
