HERE'S YOUR SIGN - recycled wood

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. This EAT sign
below 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 foot board 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. Two
 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!
