"L" is for Lemonade

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade painted sign.


It's that time of year, who can resist a little lemonade.



I painted this fun sign for the shop.


Here's some pics of the process:

1. Using an old tongue and groove cabinet door (secured with mending plates on the back) I painted it off white.

Then lime green for the LEMONADE:


2. Then fushia for the fresh squeezed:


3. Keep layering colors and add pitcher and lemons detail.
4. Sand to distress.
5. Stain with Minwax antique walnut and seal with satin poly.


A few detail shots:
