Life is Better at the Lake Sign5:00:00 AM
I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing and fun Fourth of July...
maybe even at the lake!
I ran across a reproduction sign at a local box store that caught my eye...
I knew this would be an easy DIY so I got to work creating my own version of the sign...
First I started off with scrap pieces of 1x4" pine. I cut 3 pieces to the same length and using wood glue and a couple of paint sticks, attached the boards together...
Using a mixture of Fusion Mineral Paint in Seaside and black craft paint I created a new darker blue color and painted both sides of the board.
When the paint dried I distressed the boards using a piece of fine grit sand paper.
Using carbon paper and a print out from my computer of the words I wanted to use, I traced the lettering onto the board.
Finally I gave the sign a good sanding using an electric palm sander.
I don't have a lake house so I'm not sure if life is really better at the lake but I'm willing to guess it's pretty nice!
Front porch on a lake, canoe at the dock, fishing for dinner, sunset.... yep, sounds pretty great to me!
