Hanging Bistro Sign


This 2 sided hanging Bistro sign was 
made from pieces leftover from 
some of my favorite finds....



There was the table
that I couldn't fix so I took apart and
used the top to make a beautiful side table.


One of the legs from this table 
is the cross bar for my new sign.

The plaque that says BISTRO...
is the footboard from this old bed.


I attached the table leg to another piece of wood that will screw into the wall...

This made the perfect, perfect sign hanger!


I painted this piece black and white washed the hanging sign so it would look like bleached oak.


I printed out the word BISTRO on my computer, used carbon paper to transfer it to the wood and hand painted in the letters. I sanded up the whole thing to distress the letters and give it an antiqued look.


I attached eye hooks to both pieces and hung them with a couple links of chain.

I painted the word on both sides of the sign so it could be viewed from either side.

This is looking from the kitchen 
into the table area...


And this is the table area 
looking into the kitchen...


There's a lot going on in here!
Good thing there are so many signs...





The hanging bistro sign and all it's parts are available on my Etsy shop.
