Knock off Pottery Barn "guest cottage" sign Copy Cat challenge.

Since I am leaving for vacation I thought I better get up
my entry for Debbiedoo's COPY CAT challenge

I went out to my scrap pile and got a perfect size board for my
"pottery barn" "guest cottage" copy cat sign.

I hand wrote out the words "guest cottage" with pencil

I then used my krink paint pens to fill in the words. When it was dry I distressed the heck out of it and sealed it..

and here it is in all its glory. Guess what? It cost me NOTHIN!! I had all the stuff in my house.

It sure beats the $69 price tag on the pottery barn one....DONTCHA THINK?
I hope you enjoyed this little copy cat challenge.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

This sign is awesome. Yours is so much better than spending $69 buckaroos. You did a wonderful job.
