Valentine Sawhorse Sign

8:00 AM

Here is a blast from a past post ....

and here is how I turned an old set of 

chippy, paint dripped, 3 legged sawhorses I found 
into an awesome piece of rustic Valentine art.



I cut off the legs, cut them to the same length, and screwed them all together...


I printed out the words I wanted to use on the computer and using carbon paper I traced each word onto the wood...


I outlined each word with a paint pen then 
hand painted the letters with black paint.


And so even though I didn't get a very cool set of saw horses...


 I did end up with a beautiful new chippy, painty sign!



Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Susan you can't buy that wood, it's magical. Love your method - it's my all time go to (except I can never find the carbon paper so I just press hard with the pen) but the handpainting makes all the difference. Great work.
