A few weeks ago my mom found a river worn board while walking her dog and brought it home for me.

After a long week I decided it was time for some crafting stress relief.

sign1I loved the shape of the board but didn’t really have a place for it inside so I found a garden appropriate quote to paint on it.

sign2I printed it out and found a placement on the board that I liked.

sign3Then I just traced over the word.  The wood was soft enough that with slight pressure I had a nice outline left that I could just paint right over.

sign4I wanted to use paint that I already had so I used my kitchen color (Little Sprout by Valspar) and the Fresh Mist I used on my patio chairs.

I had some little sawtooth hangers on hand so I stuck them on the back and took it outside.

sign5I love it over my leaning herb table.  I really need to level it out but that seems like it’s going to be a lot of digging and I just don’t have that kind of energy today!

It seems a little high now, but I wanted to give my plants to grow tall and I also didn’t want the dirt from the pots to splash up onto it while I’m watering.

sign6I’m so glad my mom saw this, grabbed it and brought it back for me!
