Like this sign.
I wanted to attempt to make something rustic, like it had been passed down through the family. It took everything I had not to cover it in a thick coat of paint.
To leave some of the small mistakes I had made (like the paint drip that looks like it belongs).
This sign is nothing like I expected...and that's a good thing. I am in love with the roughness around the edges, the contrast with the gray and red, and the message it conveys.
Another great thing about this sign...
It's made out of cedar, which makes it great for outside. But the back is not painted for a reason. The smell. There is something about the smell of cedar that I love and have found quite a few people that agree.
So, it's hard to let this sign go, especially since it taught me that going against my usual ways is good.
And I may just surprise myself...
