Wooden Signs

Screen shot 2013-05-19 at 6.14.47 AM

I never pass up an interesting piece of wood.

The message on a wooden sign can always be changed.

The Margaritaville sign is fun and colorful and perfect for the tiki bar.


I removed everything and sanded the anchor.


I painted, distressed and added rope.

You can find pieces like this at yard sales, Goodwill and just about any re-sale shop.


It’s more versatile now, not just for the tiki bar 🙂

Which one is for you?


Here’s another wooden plaque that got a make-over:


I found this one and it looked like someone started a project and got distracted.

That never always happens to me too!

Maybe it was for a special guy, the relationship went south and she never finished it.

In the end it sent a message without hearts.

Grab those wooden signs, no matter their message and refresh them!
