Vintage Floor Board Signs

8:35:00 PM

Repurposing found antique floor boards today...


Found in a trash can on one of my evening walks.

We have a lot of very old houses in our neighborhood and when I found them, I knew these beautiful boards could be something great. 

I ran home, got my car and filled up the back....

When I got home I gave each board a coat of white paint on the front only to preserve the awesome patina on the back.


After the white paint dried I started painting... this one was hand painted so it is not quite perfect.  

The coffee sign was made using a computer print out of the letters transferred to the wood using copy paper.


The boards were then left over night to dry.


In the morning they got a good sanding and given a coat of
dark wax.




These signs all sold just going to prove that
walking is great in more ways than one!
