I have enjoyed being a part of SYTYD each week. It is the perfect time for me to go. My dream would be to participate once our farmhouse is complete. As we continue on our journey I will share the projects and adventures along the way.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL LADIES OF SYTYCD for the wonderful inspiration you have given me.
Here is my final entry for WEEK 6
After much needed rain, that lasted for days, the sun is out. Spring feels like it has arrived. Although, living in Maine, I know all too well that we could still get a foot of snow any day from now until May. It is hard not to rush Spring.
All Good Things Come to Those Who Wait
I saw these signs at PB and knew I must have them. They would look good with my collection of garden hats.
#1. I would not spend the money to purchase them from PB.
#2. I like authentic weathered signs. The ones aged by the elements. I know I could sand them and get the aged look now, I just really like the weathered tattered ones so much more.
#3. Our master bedroom has not been constructed yet. Maybe, by fall.
Scrap Wood, White Wash, Black Paint and Patience.
First, I went on a scouting trip around the farm to see what scraps I could find. I'm not sure about anyone else, but sometimes, NO, a lot of the time, I will start a project with an idea in mind. Then as I'm searching for the materials something will present itself and my project becomes something all together different.
This pallet and my fondness of authentic weathered signs, change the course of this project.
Did I tell you that I LOVE TO GARDEN. We spend many hours in the garden. The building where the garden tools are stored is a good distance from the gardens.
Did I also tell you that I LOVE TO MULTI-TASK WHEN PROBLEM SOLVING.
My solution to authentic weathered signs for our master bedroom (once completed), a garden tool organizer close to the gardens, and not spending a penny while accomplishing the above?
Yes, it was done free hand. I like signs that don't look manufactured. The words were placed so once fall arrives and the elements have had time to do it's work. I can remove and cut the boards to make individual signs.
Now I have a place to keep me organized while I work and I will be rewarded with the fruits of my labor at Harvest Time
Garden Bounty and Wonderfully Weathered Signs
I got so excited about the possibilities of what these signs will look like by harvest, I found 5 more pallets. I am working on a list of everything we plant in the garden. I will be posting updated photos and a tutorial soon.
Now, where'd I store those garden hats?
