Distressed Fall Signs

Here is a little peek into what I am doing this weekend...

While perusing Pinterest I ran across some great fall signs created on the sides of old drawers.

They were made by Christina from Remodelando la Casa

Christina is nice enough to share the templates for 
these beautiful signs... so I was nice enough to use them :)

Believe it or not I didn't have any drawers laying around
but I did have a whole bunch of routered mahogany boards
that I picked up at a garage sale not too long ago.

I painted the boards with a dark grey color

Then I gave them a quick coat of off white. When the off white dried I used Christina's print out and graphite paper to transfer the image onto my boards.  

I hand painted the words and pictures over the transfer.

Thank you Christina... these new Fall signs are awesome!
