Painting signs

There was a faded signed hanging on a tree in my courtyard.  So I figured it was time to repaint it.  One of the blogs I follow showed how to paint lettering on signs.  It looked simple enough.  I sketched the word POOL and then I used a white paint pen to write out "RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER". 

I dug out the acrylics and started painting.  I wanted the sign to look like a vintage sign.

I aged the sign with some tinted wax.  

Once the wax drys, I took a rag and polished it to a nice shine. Drill two holes and used wire to hang it back on the courtyard tree.
Looks great and sends you in the right direction to the pool!  A fun project for sure.

Sun day, pool day

It's always sunny and warm, today was not different but today I spent it in the pool.  The mermaid enjoyed the warmth and sunshine, too!  Tomorrow I'm spending most of my day in the studio.
