Hand Painted Welcome Sign...

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Here's our latest project for the front porch.  Our front porch is HUGE and we love it!  We get a lot of stormy  weather here in the spring and fall and our family loves to sit on the porch and watch it move through. We needed a pretty large sign...

This is what we came up with...  

 It is almost 5 feet long and about 2 feet wide...yep it's HUGE!  I was thinking a painted black frame or maybe a rough cedar frame?  I am also going to sand it a little to give it an aged look and put a light stain/sealer over the top.  

We made that sign back in February of 2011.  One of the *original* pallet signs if you will.  The above sign sold right off of our porch.  Then we made this one...

Then this one...

This crazy sign started a business hobby that is still going strong today in 2014!  Thanks to all of you who have pinned it, word has gotten around.  We've seen it duplicated everywhere!  We'd like to think we had a hand in helping to start the pallet wood craze.

We sell lots of different style pallet signs now, and we'd love for you to visit our Etsy Shop to see how our style has evolved over the last several years.

If you are interested in the *ORIGINAL* Welcome Friends & Family reclaimed wood sign, you can find it HERE

If you don't already then we would love to have you join us over at FACEBOOK.  Plus, our FB fans see the newest designs first & get all the best discounts!

We truly appreciate all the interest in this sign.  If you want to make your own, for your own home then we'd love to see a picture!  You can send it to...threemangoseeds@yahoo (dot) com.

However, if you own a sign business or an Etsy shop, please do not copy ours exactly.  Be creative -- change up the design (font) to make it your own. Thank you.

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Donnie & Lauren ~ Thank you both! I just finished a sign for my kitchen that I'll be blogging about soon. Hope you check back & let me know what you think. xoxo

  8. Very cool sign. How did you paint the letters? What's your secret for such precise painting? Come link up sometime at I Made It! Monday at Ninth Street Notions.

  9. Hey Amanda ~ Thanks! I use several different methods to transfer the letters. I create my wording in Publisher then either use the printed copy by pressing down hard as I trace it, leaving indentions in the soft wood, or I create an overhead transparency for the bigger signs. You can also print your wording, then use a #2 pencil and color over the backside of the words. Then trace the words onto your wood. :) I would love to link up!!! I have a project I'm working on now and will link up when it's done. xoxo
