I found a pair of old glass cabinet doors and I decided to turn them into signs.
I made two of these. One to sell at the antique mall and one for myself. The one I took to the mall looked like this. I left the back clear.
I decided to experiment with mine a little bit.
I aged some brown packing paper. You can see the technique I used here. After I aged the paper, I coated it with decoupage medium and just stapled it on the back. I like it both ways. The paper gives it a lot of interest.
I wanted to stage it for the picture, but time just didn't allow it. Instead, I took a picture of the sign surrounded by my pile-o-stuff waiting for paint, letters, and numbers. I'm planning on repainting my kitchen and putting it in there, so I'll show you when (if) it gets done.
So which do you prefer?
I'll be attending the fabulous parties listed on my sidebar. Won't you join me?
