Canvas Open Sign

5:56:00 AM


I'm opening up a new, larger room at the antique store.

To celebrate I created a canvas open sign for my room.


Business is booming and
I'm moving from a little nook in the wall to 
a full fledged room.

I thought a vintage looking open sign would still be cute.

I began with a length of drop cloth fabric.

I painted the fabric with Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

In the morning when the paint was dry, 
 I traced fun lettering in a font called Showboat onto the canvas
then painted it in with a Sharpie paint stick.

The finished sign hangs from a vintage hanger
and announce to all that my new 
little room is OPEN!
