I am just LOVING all of the wood my sweet Dad had bundled up and delivered to me months ago to use as I wish.
As much as I SO appreciated how thoughtful my Dad was (and always is), I unfortunately hadn’t done anything with this wood.
Well, that was until yesterday.
After I dropped my little ladies off at camp, and my son was off with a friend for the day, I decided to dive into that wood pile and get busy.
I set up the chop saw, got my safety goggles out and got to work.
It was a lovely day, and I was just loving working outdoors.
I was busy cutting and sanding wood in my zone, all the while listening to iHeart radio (which I love BTW!).
In total, I constructed 3 signs. Two larger ones at 22″ x 35″ and one smaller one at 17″ x 25″.
I was pretty pleased with all that I got accomplished in the time my kiddos were gone, and that evening I even started some of the painting.
The wood is just GORGEOUS, which I didn’t really realize until I sanded it.
It’s cedar so it has a pretty grain, color and it’s naturally aged…just beautiful.
So one of the signs is done. One is just about done, and the last littler one is just a twinkle in my eye.
So here is what I did with one of the larger signs and I like it so much I may have to keep it.
(my goal is to sell them).
I’ll keep you posted when I finish the others, but until then I would love to hear what you think ?!?
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer !
