We salvage every scrap we get and in every piece of wood, I see a sign.  Every step is free hand from drawing out the lettering to the painting.  All signs have been sealed with polyurethane to keep the paint from chipping.  I had sold one sign before I could get a picture of it.  It said 'Cottage Gardens'.  Good tip to remember is do not drink a lot of coffee before painting.
