Heres our sign!

Heres our sign! 

Here's our sign! 

This is a vintage chalkboard that we've repurposed for our sign at fleamarkets/antique shows.  It's a "show stopper" for sure!!!  We want to make sure our customers can find us! 

We painted it the vintage-y turquoise color, and my friend Terri did the hand lettering (on both sides), (and sealed it) , and her talented daughter, Amber, added the bling (crystals and ball bearings) with some rebar wire.  (love, love the bling!!!) We topped it with an old piece of aluminum floral trim that we painted (of course...). 

Just wanted to share another piece of our traveling "shop"!!  Will share some pics from our next show (in two weeks).



Pattern or design used: My Own Design - Terri, Kathy & Amber - Nostalgia's Cottage
