new project...old fence and old tin










we have been busy figuring out how to combine our old parts into attractive signs...here we've used old fence panels and some tin ceiling tin .....these are about 5ft long..except the bar sign......my theory on making stuff is, if its small it can come from china for pennies....so i want to make big!!! lisa made these.... will they sell? time will tell.......

Love the garden sign, would blend in nicely with herbs and such. I can see the be nice or leave down by the pool. Will they be waterproof or will the ceiling tile rust out?

how about "no shoes, no shirt, no problem"

also, saw some neat signs using the old license plates, cut a house shape out of one with the state name on it, and then under it, the letters cut out of other plates spelling 'HOME' all on old wood...
