Make a Fixer Upper Inspired Typography Sign

You all know by now how much I love signs with words and quotes. I also love Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper. I love the episode where she created this super cute atrium.

I loved everything about that cute little atrium, but I especially loved that cute “herboriste” sign. I tried in vain to find one but then decided to create my own.

I dig into my scrap lumber and found the perfect board.

I decided it needed a border so I taped it off with painters tape.

I cut out the word “herboriste” and placed it where I wanted it.

I busted out my old standby, a can of spray paint in one of my favorite colors.

I went to work painting the boards and removed the cut out letters, then traced the letters and filled them in with black paint.

I absolutely love how it turned out.

I think it makes a great addition to our patio.

What projects have you completed recently?

I apologize for the light posting schedule lately. I am finally out of school for the summer. I was hoping to resume regular schedule today, but I am currently doing this. I am taking some time to decompress and just enjoy my children and life. Regular posting to resume soon 🙂

Farmhouse Fridays: paver patio roundup

Farmhouse Fridays: paver patio roundup

Summer is coming and I am in the mood to turn our backyard into an oasis, and a comfortable one at that. Pouring concrete is costly, but I like the look of a paver patio anyway.

I love this patio, because it has a fire pit and a pergola. It looks so comfy and inviting.

How about this patio with a fire pit and outdoor kitchen?

I’m not sure which direction I want to go yet, but I do know this:

We will need our patio to be multi leveled, since our ground area isn’t level.

And we will need gray stone to match the house.

I can’t wait to show you which direction we go. Have a great weekend!!
