Sign of the Times

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
---Charles Caleb Colton

Well, I googled the Google, perused the Pinterest & searched high and low.  I kept coming up empty on my quest for a vintage kitchen sign. 

Nothing compared to these little beauties:

Flea Market Style

Get Your Martha On

Now they say that patience is a virtue.  Unfortunately, this is not something I possess so it was time to take matters into my own hands.  
I stopped by my local hardware store and picked up the following items:
*one random piece of lumber
*sample of white paint
*black craft paint

After painting the board white, I printed off and cut out my letters. 
 **Please note the stylish masking tape I used during the layout.

After I had attached all of my letters, I traced them with a pencil.

I removed the letters and painted them black. 

Here is where it got interesting. 
I took my new sign outside and proceeded to sand, stain, and hammer 75 years worth of vintage into it. 

I am really happy with the results!
Let me know what you think!  


That’s right!  Our kitchen remodel has found its way over to
