Nothing special, just showing some quick country signs that I painted last night on some old pine siding. I need to figure out another way to hang them, however. All the knot-work is extremely time consuming.

very nice.
stupid question, how do you paint the sings, free hand, or do you use some sort of pattern/stencil?

I make them myself. If you would like, I can PM you my email and phone number. Maybe we can work something out that would benefit both of us.

I was just curious about this because I’ve seen a bunch of folks make sings and have wondered how they do it
i think they would make nice easy gift projects to give to people.

Most I’ve seen just put vinyl on a painted board and sell it as custom. Personally, I think that is cheap and borderline lazy.
