"F" is for Factory

A sign making factory.


I've been making signs lately.


It's much more efficient to make multiples of projects while you have all the supplies at the ready.

And since efficiency comes with my maiden name I was born to think this way.
These three large signs are going to the Spring Auction at the kid's school.



And these are posted in my Etsy shop.


Honestly I love making things and these signs were a good time.






For your kitchen:
(These are made from pallet wood.)





Even if you don't bake this would still look great in your kitchen:




As a collection:




The backs have sawtooth hangers, the larger signs have two:


Simple artwork that was definitely fun to make.
(For more signs with the tutorial click here to a previous post.)

They looks so awesome! My hubby has a landscape company so I'm gonna have plenty of access to pallet wood in another month or so. Thanks for the idea & inspiration!

I LOVE these signs! You are so smart to make a lot at one time. I usually try a new craft and only get one made and it is a lot of work to get all the supplies ready if you want to make more!

I'm going to try my hand at some signs soon! Now to figure out where to get some good wood pieces!!

These are great! Most of my stuff is beachy but signs like these make me want more of a farmhouse look! Love them!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

How nice! I always love signs. I bet the ones in the auction will do well, and I know your friends getting the gifts will love them, not only because they are pretty but because they were made by you.
