Make a Vintage Stand for a Wooden Sign

7:51:00 AM

I'm making a ton of new signs lately so I thought
I would add a new spin to this one.

First, I created the sign with a stencil I bought from the Silhouette store using my Cameo cutting machine. 

When the paint dried I stained the sign with an antiquing medium.

Next, I created a stand using an antique chippy spindle.

I made a square base then screwed and wood glued the spindle to the back of my sign. 

I chose a color that was a close match to the vintage green in the spindle to use on the base and on the lettering in my sign .

I love the way it turned out, 
it gives my sign whole a new twist!
