Project/Sign Photo Gallery!!

It's here!!!....the long awaited photo gallery!!
Here you will find the pictures of the many projects I've worked on throughout this year. If you find something you like and would like for me to recreate it, please let me know and I'll do everything I can to paint you a similar sign that you will love for a life time!
Please remember that most of the signs have been made with reclaimed lumber/metal, making each piece unique...therefore, while I can get it as close as possible to an inspiration piece...I will not be able to make another sign exactly like another. Also remember that since I do use the reclaimed lumber/metal, each piece has its own natural distressing - I make no attempts to hide or correct any holes/knotholes, gauges/scratches, or anything that makes it unique. If you desire a sign made from new wood, please add this request to your order and I will contact you with the appropriate price change. Also know that the prices of a piece are determined by many factors....the materials used- antique or fairly new wood/metal, hinges/hardware used- antiqued or new, size of the piece and sometimes the type of paint and technique that is used. Therefore all of this must be determined concerning your order prior to obtaining an accurate price quote...though I can give a ballpark price range! :) Any changes made to these factors during the creation of your art, may change the price of the piece. We can tweak details to fit the needs of your budget, ideas and needs! There is something for most contact me today!
I look forward to working with you and creating a piece of art that you can enjoy for many years to come. As always thank you all so much for your orders, support and encouragement!

Many more signs are being made as you look at these today! So be sure to check back to see what's new!! Have you seen an idea online that you like? Do you have an idea of something that you'd like to see on a sign? If so, message me today! We will work closely together to make sure that the vision of your sign is made into your reality! Here are some of the questions that may be asked : 
What size? Color or stained? What color letters? Distressed- none, lightly, heavily? Newer pieces of wood or older, does it matter to you how wide each plank is or what type/piece of wood is used (single board or 3put together)?

I work with you throughout the process, from sending pictures of the design that I first make on the computer (sent via Facebook message, email or text) to sending a picture of the wood if you'd like, to sending pics while its being painted and after! I do everything I can to make sure that you are completely satisfied!! Remember that all signs are painted by hand so there is normally a 2-4wk turn-around. Though rush orders are accepted. 

***All payments are due before I start on the signs. I accept credit card payments through Paypal (via me emailing you an invoice) or cash/check.***

  21. love signs like this! especially beach ones for my shore house!

  22. Hi, When I used to live in my country El Salvador, everything is pretty simple. I had a house pretty normal size , it was actually my dad's house which is no longer. But I use to always have many signs around they were homemade and they are great because they remind you in writing how blessed one is. Thanks for this awesome beautiful signs they are great for the everyday living.

    1. Thank you for sharing that Rosa. ;-) I'm glad that my work was able to "take you back" to a more "simple time/way of life." I've been taught that "words are containers for power" which can have great effects on us. They can turn an ordinary life into an extraordinary life! ;-)
