ANTIQUE French Pharmacy Sign made from Scraps and Iron on Paper

Good Morning on this last day of December!
Tonight I am scrambling to write this as my hubby is gone at the sledding hill with the kids
while I quick knocked out a project...EEK...The kids and hubby have been home
for over a week now and I was getting the itch to make something.

I quick ran out to the shed and grabbed some scrap boards that I got out of a neighbors
trash pile..:) I used my new saw that I got for Christmas to cut the boards in half (thanks Mom and Dad C.)  :)

I then used two boards on the back to secure them.

When that was done I gave it a quick white wash with my CeCe Caldwell's vintage white.

After it dried I got out my Iron and printed off a cute new Graphic from
The Graphics Fairy.
I used tshirt iron on paper.
I ironed it straight onto the dried painted boards.

AND...this is what I got...I love it...just a simple Rustic old looking
Pharmacy sign.

The best part besides getting to craft after a long break was that it was such a quick and pretty
clean craft.! I have a feeling I may be making a few more of these!
I hope you enjoyed and Please be safe tonight.
Have a Blessed New Year and
Thank you for your support!

Unknown said...

Okay... Cute is NOT a good adjective. Ummm... So vintage! (There... That's better! LOL!)

I have a soft spot for signs and this is awesome. I love how fast you whipped it out. You are too good. Happy New Year!!

Same question as above, did you use regular transfer paper? I didn't know you could iron that right onto wood! Steam or no steam? I'm obviously thrilled with this idea and can't wait to try it! I love your sign!

Great work! Don't you just love using transfers all methods? I do.

I've made a lot of signs but sure never even thought of using an iron on transfer paper. Now I'll have to try this! It looks pretty easy! Thanks for the idea.

You are the transfer queen! Not to mention the best user of Graphics Fairy graphics. Love this, and oh how I love that you got the wood from your neighbor's trash!

Love the sign. I have to get some of that iron on paper and give it a try. I've never tried anything like this. Visiting from Roadkill Rescue!
