Vintage Sign Inspiration

Hello to you!
The last three weeks has been busy and a ton of fun…
My BFF Diane was here for a visit.  We did what we do best—work on projects (and have a blast doing it)!
Today I want to share a couple signs we completed.  

We had a whole stash of vintage mirrors that we have removed from dressers and vanities before making them over…
What to do with all of these?  Well, Diane had a super idea..
We removed the mirrors to expose a wonderful large piece of wood in very interesting shapes.
Perfect starting off point for some signs..
We love the way this Western Union turned out.  It’s so graphical and sharp and reminds us all how far our communication devices have come in the last 60 years or so…

Who doesn’t have a fond memory of a trip to the beach and a stay at a great motel?
This great sign brings back the time you and your family stayed in a motel and put on your “thongs” (yes, we used to call them that) and walked to the beach.
Wouldn’t this be so much fun to hang in a room for a touch of color and whole lot of whimsy?

The inspiration found in old signs is truly endless….
I love the feeling they bring to a space and plan to make some for my own home too….

Be inspired by the past and give your present a fesh new look.

So glad you came by today.
