Tuesday Display Chain "See it~do it"

My" see it~ do it" is a sign I saw in my friends shop. I loved it and when I went back it was gone so I came home and made one. My letters were different, but they were what I had. I had my son make breadboard ends for me and I painted the board black and then used the Caromel Colors in Pumpkin. I love the texture the paint gives to it. I finished of with the toner for an old look. Then I sanded it alot.




Here is my copy....my letters are bigger and bolder...everyone who sees mine has not seen the other one and it looks good in the spot where it is hung.

I am joining Misi over at 1890 Gable House Musings for the Tuesday Display Chain.

I love the saying "easily made", and most things are:) Your sign is awesome. I am so glad that you just whipped it up after the other was gone. I bet it has way more meaning. Good job. -Steph-
