I have made more than 10 different things in the last two weeks and haven't found time to post them!
Here's a quick few things I've made using Ship Lap Siding. My husband built a garage at his previous home and we lap sided the whole thing. I kept the extra boards, which make great signs!
I leave the larger lap part at the top of the sign, sometimes cutting off the bottom smaller lap. My lap siding pieces are rough on the top side, which allows for a great result when dry brushing over it.
Here's how it looks from the side:
This sign was made after a nice couple, Adrian and Pearl Whyte, saw my "Bakery" sign above and liked the style of it. They also wanted a convertible car on the sign and left the rest to me.
Here's what I came up with:
They were pleased with their sign.
I've also made and sold some Beach signs with an arrow in the large lap area:
Okay.. back to the workshop!
