Transforming an Old Sign to a Train Station Sign

6:00:00 AM

I found this great sign at the thrift store for $1.00,
but it said something silly like 
"Kiss the Chef"

(I'm no chef)
But I bought it anyway. 

I re-painted, sanded and distressed the old sign. 

I just love those signs at the train station telling you which
station you're pulling into.

So I used the chef sign to create one. 

I painted the name of a local town along our railroad route onto the board.

All aboard!

All for a buck.
