This is an old cabinet door that came out of the $15 estate sale room. I saw a few signs at an antique sale a few months back and knew I wanted to try my own sign. I've been pinning old signs on Pinterest for a while to find one I liked and finally decided to try my own thing. I pinned and used Miss Mustard Seed’s tutorial seen HERE.
I painted the base in Provence Chalk Paint, one coat.
I am lucky because I have a projector I use for work so I hooked that up and projected the logo I found using Google images.
I just centered and traced out the design.
The next step was painting in the lines. I used all the same colors except the “pickles” I wanted in yellow. I was pretty impressed with myself for staying in the lines!
As you all know I am usually hesitant to really distress my furniture much. I like the slightly worn look. But, for this sign I really wanted it to look old so I sanded away.
And just to give you a better idea of size I stuck it up on my pie safe to photograph.
I don’t have a home for this yet but this is mine to keep. I chose the Bick’s Pickles logo because me and Will meet at my Dad’s cucumber station. My Daddy is a farmer and years ago the farm grew cucumbers and operated a cucumber station. I worked Summers there in high school and Will found a job there through a friend for two Summers and the rest is history :) The cucumbers that were grown during the time we both worked there were sold to Bick’s Pickle Company. :)
What do you guys think? I’m ready to make another, it was a neat project to work on.
