Apple crate signs

A couple more signs. This time I took apart an apple crate. They are for my daughters new home.

She moved to a new apartment last month, now that she has started grad school. The opportunity unexpectedly came up for her to purchase the dulplex, and her loan was approved on Friday! So, at 21, in grad school, and she has managed to purchase a home, and income property on her own!!! I am so proud of her. The least I could do was make her the signs she wanted :)

Barn wood sign

I made my first barn wood sign. I used the wood we saved from my in-laws pole barn we tore down several years ago. I used walnut stain on the boards, and cut the stencil out of contact paper with my lynx. I should have put a couple coats of poly on before I did the painting of the letters. I had a really hard time getting the contact paper to stick to the wood, and had some edges that bled. Now I know for next time :)
