I made this simple 'Welcome Sign' in no time at all.
We had some fence slats in our garage that we hadn't used and I grabbed one. It's outdoor treated wood so it's perfect for an outdoor sign! You can pick one up any home improvement store for about a dollar.
I spray painted it whatever tan color I had available. I actually used what was left in two different tan cans.
I bought some letters at Walmart that were the perfect size and spray painted them with an antique white.
Then I attached the letters with wood glue.
The next day as I was driving away from my house I noticed that my letters looked too bright so the next morning I gave the letters a once-over with a beige chalk paint. My daughter noticed the difference right away and laughed that the first paint job lasted one day!
You can tell that it's just being held in place by the urn. I originally had planned on putting it on the other side of the door but decided it was better here. I was surprised by how well it matched the house!
I'm looking forward to adding pumpkins and other fall decor in a couple of weeks!
love and blessings~
