Valentine Sawhorse Sign

8:00:00 AM

Here is a blast from a past post ....

and here is how I turned an old set of 

chippy, paint dripped, 3 legged sawhorses I found 
into an awesome piece of rustic Valentine art.

I cut off the legs, cut them to the same length, and screwed them all together...

I printed out the words I wanted to use on the computer and using carbon paper I traced each word onto the wood...

I outlined each word with a paint pen then 
hand painted the letters with black paint.

And so even though I didn't get a very cool set of saw horses...

 I did end up with a beautiful new chippy, painty sign!

Happy Valentine's Day!
