Fall Signs From Drawer Sides

90 Minutes
While cleaning my garage the other day I found the pieces of an old drawer. Being that I hate to throw away even small pieces of wood, I began thinking on how to repurpose these wood.
Besides the dovetail joints, I also loved that the pieces were the the perfect size to make some signs.
The words/pictures were printed and carbon copied onto the wood.
Acrylic paint was used to draw each letter.
Some shadows were also added and even a Sharpie was used to go around some of the letters.
Once dry, and using a palm sander, a light distressing was done before applying a dark wax to give them an old feel.
The painting doesn't have to be perfect! The distressing part kind of erases many of the mistakes done while painting the letters.
