Wooden Christmas Signs

The Plumgrove Boutique was this past weekend and it was so much fun.  I can't believe how many people came to shop.  There was an endless stream of customers.

So, I'm really happy that I made the extra effort last week to finish up these little wooden Christmas signs.  They were so easy to make and I had a lot of fun painting them. 

 
I used an old 1x6 I found in my garage.  I stained it with Minwax in Ebony (my favorite because it is such a dark color), painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White, and then used regular acrylic craft paint to paint on the words.
 

After the paint dried I used my sanding block to distress it, added a couple eye hooks and twine and it was good to go.


The only thing left to do is decide which one is my favorite!

34th Annual Plumgrove Holiday Boutique

My Annual Holiday Boutique is coming up this weekend.  If you are in the Sacramento area I would love for you to stop by and do some shopping.

 
 
Over the years, our boutique has gotten bigger and bigger.  Last year, Good Day Sacramento came early in the morning and filmed a few segments for their show.  It was so much fun!  Here's a clip of one of the segments:
 
 
And a few pictures from last year to give you an idea of how much stuff we have.
 
 



Hope to see you there!
