I painted this sign last night to hang above the French doors in my cottage dining room. I saw a picture of a sign hanging in someone's kitchen on a home tour on somebody's Blog, and I adored the sentiment. (sorry! I don't remember which one of you shared it, but thanks for the inspiration!) I made a mental note to make one for myself, when I got the time.
I shared the technique on how to paint verses on things when I made my garden sign from an old headboard a short while back. The cake sign was actually an old sign I already had that was a Thanksgiving themed sign, and I didn't have the right spot for it in my cottage, so I just thought I'd reinvent it as a year round sign. A little bit of primer and paint, then a bit of antiquing (You really can't see it unless you click on the first close up photo to enlarge it, but I used a tobacco colored paint to antique the edges of the blue area) and what was old was new again.
I think it kind of lightens the mood in the dining room, don't you?
