Rustic Lemonade Sign

 I made this rustic Lemonade Sign for the Bridal Shower.  But I ended up not having a great place to put there :(  I also had dreams of making a lemonade stand for this to go on, but didn't get to that. Maybe someday.  I planned for it to look similar to the Potting Bench I made from Old Pallets.


 I made it from some more old wood from the barn.  I just picked out a piece and wrote everything on there in pencil.  Then I turned it over to my husband for burning the letters on.  I am accident prone and he is a Fireman. I thought it was better that he do the fire stuff rather than me.

He just stuck this ring in the fire and then used pliers to traced over my letters with it.  It took sometime because it would cool down rather fast.  He would only get about one letter traced, if that, before he had to put it back in the fire. But it was still pretty easy, just took a little time.

Never miss a new post!

  11. I have been working on a cabinet for a client that has wood burning. I broke down and bought a tool at Michael's. I do like the look of woodburning but you are right, it does take time. Thanks for sharing this week on BeColorful.
