How to SPRING LOAD Your Home With Old Signs... Wear Your Helmut!


This post isn't a little over the top. It's WAAAAY BEYOND. So you have been warned.
I was about to go into a vintage show, selling the signs I make with my stencils, but I promised to be in a blogger's home tour. But because I was cranking out these old signs for the show, that's all I had new to work with.
So... what else is a signaholic to do?
I'm so glad you asked.
Why, hang them all up, of course!

Thankfully, these signs are so easy to accomplish. Watch out for fallen down fences. This wood is gold! Here's what I've done with these very planks...

It's fun displaying food related signs in a kitchen! It reminds me to eat. Sort of.

You'd think I'd remember to pick up the groceries, yes? But nooo... they don't speak. But they most certainly should.

I felt sorry for my red shoes, so they got a really cute red one for good measure. :)
I also made this one to encourage (ahem) Miriam from Hometalk to make something with her own Apple Farm stencil. Did you make it yet, Miriam?! Maybe I'll add a few hundred more signs to my home for a little more inspiration...

Welcome to my paint studio aka basement. Studio sounds nice though, don't you think? The signs on this wall help me stay organized.
And the cupboard got plastered while I was at it, because there is no such thing as bare wood in this house any longer.

And we can't forget the powder room. Because in all honestly, it's impossible to forget the powder room...

And let's not miss outdoors. Oh yes. We are not done yet! The shed wears all kinds of crazy, cool old signs and license plates and such year around. She's very happy with her cool outfit!
