Seeing red....

Hi Everyone!  It was a good building weekend.  I was busy working on inventory for the Arbor Fair in a couple of weeks.  Sunday I built two benches and a couple of storage boxes and tonight I made all the cuts for a third bench which I plan on putting together tomorrow night.  But tonight, I thought I'd show you one of the signs I made recently for a client.  I've made a couple of these Fresh Produce signs in green.
 I like it in the green.....
 ...but I think I like it even better in the red.
I created a special mix of red for this sign and I'm really happy with how the red turned out.  It took me three coats of red to get the coverage I wanted and I careful scraped away the red to reveal the white and black layers that were beneath the red.  If I had sanded it, it would have given the white a pink tint, which I really didn't want.  I wanted it to look like it had chipped off and I think it turned out well.  So that's just one of the things I made recently.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. You did it again. What beautiful signs. I love it in the green and the custom red.

  2. great signs holly, love the red! I've been painting everything red lately.... :)

  3. Those turned out great! I think the chippy turned out perfectly.

  4. I love it! I think the red is better, too. :)

  5. What is it about the red everyone likes best? Me too!
