Since the first bathroom we remodeled is officially the "ladies' room", our other bathroom that is undergoing remodeling will officially be the "guys' room". I knew I wanted to decorate it with either a medical theme, or a barber theme...or both. While in the "ladies' room", doing some magazine browsing, I came across an article from Country Living magazine about collectible antique barber shop items and saw this antique barber sign, advertising the prices for services rendered. It's valued at $300, so even if I could find one, I couldn't afford it, but how simple it would be to just make my own!
It's times like these that I'm glad I hold onto blank pages from dismantled antique books. I love the aged color tone they have. I designed my sign in Word, removing a few of the services, so it would fit on the page better, then printed it out on 2 different old pages. This page isn't quite as dark as the next page.

I love the pretty caramel coloring this old page has, so I decided to use it, but it was too short to include the location at the bottom, so I had to remove it. I left the ragged edge on the page I put on my sign, just because I liked it, but removed it for the printable below.
I found an old frame in my stash, with a picture inside I didn't want.
Now, to wait patiently until the bathroom is done getting remodeled to get to hang it.My husband is working on laying tile that looks like old wood in the laundry room right now, but I hope once he's done with that, he'll come back to the bathroom, so it can finally be finished.
