Garden Sign

6:00:00 AM

If you've been around a while you know how much I like to completely take apart a cast off and make 
something new from the pieces....

This time I found a great old oak lamp-table in front 
of my neighbors house... spider eggs and all....

After dis-assembling the whole lamp I had a vision... I thought the front folding shelf would make the perfect garden sign...

I screwed the shelf to another straight board that broke off the other side of the table... Isn't it the perfect sign shape?

I loved the color and the texture of the bare wood... 
no painting needed!

I printed out the word "GARDEN" on my computer
and used graphite paper to transfer the letters to the sign...

On the back of the sign I attached a rusty metal stake to help 
the sign stay securely in the ground...

I painted in the letters, waxed the sign with furniture wax to protect it from the elements. The wax brought out the 
beautiful color of the oak...

The bunny likes it too!

  1. Spider eggs and all - you crack me up! What a great sign. I love that you didn't paint it!


  2. You are so creative, Susan! I love that sign. The curve to it gives it such a nice look. I think you used a much easier font on your sign. Of course, I had to pick something so curly and swirly as a font on mine! Really not a good idea for someone with shaky hands.

  3. Oh so cute! I love that sign.

  4. Recycle and it. The sign is adorable.

  5. thats a perfect little sign,, I do love the shape of it.

  6. Wow, Susan! How Creative. I Love it. Thanks for all your inspiration. Enjoy your Day!!!!

  7. I have to tuck that info in my memory banks, because I don't usually think like that....... "Bliss, you can take things apart to use them. Disassemble".


  8. Susan you could use the pole base to hold a birdhouse in your garden too!

  9. Yes..I have been around enough to know you are very good at making something sweet out of something ugly! Great Garden sign.
