Fun shabby chic signs

I love painted signs, they add a touch of humour to your home. I always smile when I see a nice one and there are so many phrases to play with. I've recycled 3 boards of wood to paint 3 signs:

Home sweet home sign. I used a relatively new chopping board that I cleaned with sugar soap, sanded it and painted using a mix of Annie Sloan's Cream and Louis Blue paint. I painted letters and decoration around the board with AS Old white, waxed, distressed and waxed again.

I love this one hehehe... Be nice or leave! I used the same colors mentioned on the previous sign.
I recycled a piece of floor board I had left from my house.

I also love this one and I think I'll make more in different colors. Here I used Annie Sloan's Louis Blue mixed with a bit of Paris Grey for the backround, and brown acrylic paint for the letters and decoration.
I used another piece of floor board I had left from my house.
