Earlier this summer, I was referred to a chiropractor looking to create some custom signs for his parents cabin. You've seen those cute "how many miles to" signs pointing in different directions on a country road? This was our take on that. He gave me names and mileage but I had free reign on design/colors/etc.
Knowing that he was installing a 6" post, I tried to keep the total height in mind of how much the height of each sign would take up, making room for some space between each sign, so he wouldn't have to start at the top, and they wouldn't be hitting the ground un-readable for passers-by. Then I went through my stash of wood and remnants:
Then it was paint color time, and a few I kept as-is:
I then measured all boards and determined what would go on each based on their length of names. Designed them on my Design software and cut with the Silhouette and finally painted!
Each project I do I swear is my favorite. My styles of design have grown so much in the past 2 years since I started and I love seeing that transition! Once the signs were all painted, my husband helped me by coating them with many many coats of poly, as we knew these would be outdoors and exposed to the elements. Here is a photo of the final installment!
