HERE'S YOUR SIGN


For those of you looking for a Jeff Foxworthy stand up routine of the same name,
you will be disappointed. This article is to help give you ideas and offer suggestions
in repurposing items into new and fabulous signs to hang and enjoy in your home.
 
 
This FARM FRESH MILK tote is a thrift store item that was probably made in a workshop class.
It manages to move around my house quite a bit and shows up in many photos. The other side says
FARM FRESH EGGS.
 
 
The EAT sign is a discarded china cabinet door with a glass insert.
The FRESH BREAD DAILY sign was a hexagon table top and the French sign below is a
Christmas sign that was repainted.
 
 
 
 
How about using the back rest of an old broken chair as a WELCOME sign.

 
This elaborate sign is made from a footboard and old plastic mirror frame. The foot board has been
turned upside down, and the frame of the mirror was cut top and bottom and attached to the board.
 
 
My PARIS FLEA MARKET sign that hangs in our bedroom was painted on a very old board
that was a dresser drawer bottom. Many of the really old dressers are falling apart so we can't use
 them as intended so finding new uses for the wood like this is perfect.
 
 
Dresser drawer backs can be made of some really nice wood so before you throw the whole dresser
away check to see if you can draw yourself a COFFEE sign with a black sharpie.

 
The 10 cent LAUNDRY sign on the right is a piece of maple originally used in a dresser as the side
 of a drawer. 2 discarded oak kitchen cabinet doors hang above the shelf. These are perfect way to
recycle wood parts from furniture and renovations. The WHITEHALL LAUNDRY is an actual fabric
 laundry bag stretched in a frame. Another drawer part is the piece used for this BUY VINTAGE seen
 below. This sign hangs on my front porch.
 
 
Have fun creating your own signs!
