A Good Sign...

A while back, on his way home from work, my hubby picked up some cabinet doors (Well at least I think that's what they are.) that a neighbor was throwing out. He knows how much I love curbside treasures so he brought them home thinking I could do something with them.
After some time thinking about what to do with this very tall piece and with a little inspiration help from Pinterest, this is what I made....
This is our very petite porch...And it got a petite makeover.
I made a porch sign. My Pinterest inspiration was a sign that had the word JOY painted on it for Christmas time but since I wanted the board out on my porch year-round I thought painting the center with chalkboard paint would allow me the freedom to write something different for every season.
I already had the painting materials so the cost was $0.00. Pretty good for free, I would say :-)

So what do you think?

Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

Hugs and Kisses,

It's wonderful! Love the height of it and also that you used chalk board paint on it...makes it so holiday/occasion friendly. Great Job!

Dear Ana,
Your sign is just lovely! You did such a beautiful job, and I love your porch.. It is so pretty!

WOW! Best Husband ever!!!!
Mine always rolls his eyes and grumbles while asking "what do you think you're going to do with THIS?!?!" ahahahaha
Turned out Lovely but then you really know how to turn everything into a sweet and lovely piece.
You have a penchant for rescuing... I'm sure that door is very grateful and standing proudly at your porch as if saying "here lives thoughtful and caring people"
I'd like to do a sign - with a football quote - for dear son's bedroom but I keep postponing the mess I'm sure I'll be doing ahahah
I need you closer. Global Warming could very well dry Atlantic and I'd walk my way - board under the arm - to you ;)
Thank you for sharing,

hi my sweet friend, your husband is truly a treasure (he) and you have golden hands. your porch is adorable

That was a great idea, Ana! I love and pin all those porch signs I see, too, but I would also prefer something that could be used and changed up all year. Making it a chalkboard was a very good idea.
