One of the most common usages for driftwood in decor is signs. I, too, like to make signs out of it. As I choose wood to use, I look for pieces that are smooth and flat on both sides and relatively lightweight.
This time, I laid all the pieces out on the table first to decide what I would do with each of them. I tried to envision what each one would say and what colors to do them in. I then measured each one and marked the details on a post-it note. I found this process was much more efficient than the “one at a time” method.
Today’s sign is one of the larger ones I’ve done. I can envision it perhaps above a doorway…or nestled in a bookcase…
Presenting… “The Lake House” done in my new favourite font, aptly named “Pottery Barn” ~ go figure!
