Hey ya’ll! I was invited to team up with several talented ladies for a challenge this month that is hosted by Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip . The challenge rules were to take a piece of wood and make anything fall décor related. I knew the perfect piece of scrap wood that we had leftover from the tv accent wall. This wood is 100 plus years old and just stunning!
I have been wanting a cute wood picket fence type fall sign for awhile, so when Terrie invited me on this challenge, I knew I had the perfect piece for the project! I gathered all of my painting supplies and got to work!
I used craft paints and small brushes from Hobby Lobby that I already had on hand.
I also lightened the colors I had with Ibis White that I had on hand from Sherwin Williams. I accented everything in black to bring out all the pumkins cute-ness. I also highlighted with white.
I am so blessed that God has given me the ability to paint! When our oldest two daughters were younger, I painted canvases to make extra money, along with wall murals.
I hope you enjoy our blog hop! Check out my friends too! They have amazing talent!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Looks good with the wheat stalks. You are blessed to have such talent. Do you have plans for the other side…something for winter perhaps?
I love that old board! So pretty when painted and it’s the perfect size for any size front porch – especially if you have a “porchlette” just like me! lol Great job!
Thank you so much Tammy!! It would be the perfect size for a small porch!
This is very cute and I like that it’s subtle. Like images you painted too. Happy fall
I have seen you paint cabinets and walls but this sign took your painting talents to the max. Love the sign and how you created it. Looks amazing Shae. Thanks for joining in on the fun challenge. Have a blessed Wednesday!
Aww, you are so sweet Terrie!! I appreciate your kind words my friend!! Have a wonderful day!!
Love how the little sign turned out and wow – that piece of wood! I’m thinking of about a dozen or more ways to use beautiful bits of wood like that if only I had a heap of it! lol
Shae, this is a super cute sign! I am very impressed that you have used your talents to help support your family. Happy to have found you and your blog!
Thank you sweet friend!
You are really talented. As someone who cannot draw, I’m really impressed. What a cute sign for fall on the front porch.
