French Breakfast Sign

 When making a sign, three boards are better than one, right?



This is my latest sign creation, using boards connected with metal joiners and a French graphic (from The Graphics Fairy, of course).  It's the same one I used here.  Maybe no one who comes over will notice!

Tracing and painting it was no short task.



I stained it with a gel stain and then sanded it a lot.  It looks perfectly aged now.







Au revoir!


In addition to the parties on my Blog Parties tab, I'm linking to:
