Made it My Own! Painted Sign!

I have been seeing so many great projects around the web and on Pinterest lately that I have decided to occasionally take that inspiration and... "Make it My Own" So here you have the first project that came from that idea!

For the last while I've wanted one of those signs that say your family name and the year that you were "established" you know like this one or even one like this... 
So being me I made one from scratch... 
To make my sign I got some reclaimed wood 
and I painted it in 3 layers yellow, dark blue and then light blue. 
Then I sanded it down (a lot) and painted our name on it. couldn't have been easier... and now I have a new and very pretty sign in our porch....
Now what to put with it to accent it and make that shelf pretty?

Have you made something with your name lately? Do you have any ideas for me to add to my shelf? Leave it in the comments!


  1. So cute!! Would LOVE it if you would link this up at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!! http://www.sweetlittlegals.com/2011/09/turquoise-lovin-6.html

  3. Sweet sign! Love the colours and that the grain of the wood shows through a little from the sanding.

  4. I love when a project so cute looks really easy to do! thanks! Visiting from Running with Glitter link party.

  5. Oh so very pretty! I love the color, and the font is beautiful. For some reason when I look at it and think of accents, sea glass pebbles comes to mind. That may be just me though. I have an affinity for sea glass.

  6. Hi Emilee - stopping by from QOTC. Love this sign!! I need to make myself one, but get overwhelmed with the painting of the name part. My hand is sooo not steady. I may need to order vinyl. LOL! ;)
