Everywhere a Sign

I've been playing in my pile of vinyl letters again.  I came across a big box of them at a yard sale last summer and I still have a good stash left over to put more signs together.  I'll just keep on going until I run out of vowels. Yikes, I'm down to my last A now.

The FLEA MARKET sign sold at my antique show a couple of weeks ago, so it's time for another batch.

This time I pulled apart a pallet that had been stashed in my side yard for months.  The letters were the perfect size for these pallet boards with about 1/8" to spare on top and bottom.

I sanded down the rough areas of the boards, then gave them a light white wash with a 50/50 mixture of acrylic paint and water.  I think the wash gives them more of a driftwood look.

I used E6000 glue to attach the letters making sure I applied it only to the black area so it wouldn't show through the clear vinyl.

The last step was to add two saw tooth hangers to the back of each board.
All ready to hang in your home, your shop, or to advertise that barn sale you've always wanted to have.
