Café Sign

2 Materials
So we are working on what we call our Café room, here is our sign.. Which I had started out and planned as a small shelf..
My Cat Relic helping me with the wood and the spindles that I was going to use.
My Cat Relic helping me some more!
free hand painting.
My cat Luna ( Relic's brother) helping me do some free hand painting, and being my seat warmer.

At this point I had painted over the words and flowers that would be back ground paintings on the completed sign.
Another angle
I painted the legs to look like vines were climbing the and the vine actually continues on the corner and under the shelf - that became a sign.
The sign resting on its legs before we knw it would become a sign
The sign on the stand my hubby made and I painted brown and bronze.

This was all made out of wood we already had, the spindles are left over from doing our railing on the basement step, and the wood was actually a leftover - not yet cut to size stair topper.

My cost: $0
Suggested materials:
  • 12" x 40" piece of left over wood.
  • Paint ( I had)
