Pinterest Inspired - day 44

I know I am not the only one out there that is absolutely in love with PINTEREST-I mean how amazing is it that there is a place where tons of people, from all over the world, with various different "LIKES" posted for the whole world to see. Ideas - Ideas and more Ideas - I mean can the well of possibility of things to make ever run dry??? NEVER.
O.k. I found something on Pinterest that I knew I wanted to try...of course making it my own
I took some 2 x 4's (I think that's what they are called) cut them to the size I wanted then used 2 smaller & skinnier pieces of wood for the back and hammered up thru the back side to secure the front pieces to the back support pieces...
Painted the whole board a gray color then painted the word LUCKY US and added a vintage HORSE SHOE and tacked it in with some funky horse nails - I probably should have rusted them up a bit to match but I like the old & new look to it...
So probably should explain something....I have help with my construction projects.
this guy right here. My sweet husband!
So this is how we work:
I see something I like or want to try - or design something in my head and draw it out -
I tell him how big I want it (with my hands) and he tells me what type of materials I probably should use and then he cuts and sands and gives me my finished piece and I do the detail work...
It's a wonderful union of design (me) & function (him) Besides I am terrified of power tools...I can use a hand sander and that's about it...
O.k. so I want to make more of these signs maybe using a different accent piece.
Come check out my Pinterest boards
I am linking this up to the parties above.
Have a crafty good day.
