Time is "well spent" for the clock and watch faces I've used,
to create this sign,
but I think it is also serves as a gentle reminder to spend our time wisely.
I love, the crackled look of the varnish on this old wood.
I used CeCe Caldwell chalk paint, in the colors
Vermont Slate and Johnston Daffodil. I lightly sanded the
whole sign and did it a little heavier around some of the edges.
The sign was purchased by a special customer of mine,
because the message had real meaning for her.
I'll bet you'll never guess what this wood was before I turned it into a sign.
Well...here's a hint.
When I bought this old piano, it was the inside I wanted to display
because it's an absolutely beauty, so I removed the front wooden piece.
Here's that piece on the piano (photo taken in thrift store where I bought it).
It was a really large piece, so we created shelves out of some of it
and I had a few smaller pieces left over that had the pretty trim
on them, making them perfect for signs.
By the way, I've sold many of these old wooden shoe lasts
in my shop and have just 2 still available. Click on the photo
to go to the listing for them.
Hope you have a "well spent" day!
