big grocery sign

I was told by a certain someone - "to check out the fabulous grocery sign" on the Flea Market Style blog header.  This person said how much they would love a similar sign in their kitchen...hint hint.  Only on barn wood and with cream letters

Could you make one for me please?     I guess so, I said. 

Can it be really big she asked?     How big do you want it to be I answered? 

Like five or six feet long she told me.     OK - but only for you Megan

How the heck am I going to make a giant sign, I don't have any lettering that big.  I had a large old barn wood plank, and I was cleaning it outside in the driveway.   I was trying to figure out what I was going to do when my very smart 14 year old daughter said "don't worry Mom I can make you the letters on Photoshop and you can cut them out. " It will take me two minutes".

Here are the the 7" letters that my daughter made for me, and yes it took about two minutes

I cut them out and placed them on the barn wood to trace.  Painted them with creamy white paint and distressed the surface with my orbital sander.

here is the almost six foot long

Have a great weekend, Lori
