I found this old wood at Junkstock. . . not the recent Junkstock this summer, but Junkstock in the fall of 2013! So I’ve had it for quite some time.

The wood was in really good shape, had some character, and was super inexpensive, which is rare for reclaimed wood these days.

I started with a coat of white paint, then added some olive green paint as I was planning ahead to create that “weathered” look.

This next part was a bit challenging because I freehand lettered “be awesome” on to the sign.  Next time, I’ll either use stencils or print out the letters and trace them on the sign.

I then lightly sanded the entire sign to give it that weathered and worn look, then attached a fastener for easy hanging.

This now hangs above our coat closet (in a very awkward space to photograph) on our way out to the garage.

Every morning I get a nice little reminder to take on the day and be awesome!

I have another reclaimed wood project in the works right now, a whole half of a barn door!  So many possibilities, but I’ve got something up my sleeve and can’t wait to share it with you next month.

 

Smiles!
