Show & Tell: Salvaged Rustic Christmas Sign

Happy Snow Day!

It's a winter wonderland at Ugly House today. There was a bit of freezing rain before it start snowing which means all the trees look really cool. It also means a snow day for my kiddos. Thankfully we have a good support system when school is cancelled.



I was going to share last week this fun sign I made. Thankfully I got distracted because it looks much more Christmas like with all the snow. You may or may not recognize the wood. The wood is the top of the picnic table I salvaged this summer. (Click here for the post about the picnic table)




I put the wood aside assuming I would use it for a project at some point. When I started Christmas decorating and realized there was no way I was going to put Christmas lights down our entire fence...at least this year...I decided I wanted something you could see from the road. Ta da, free wood already the perfect size. All I had to do was add some free hand lettering. I grabbed some left over paint samples, gave the stop a good cleaning and had the entire project done in a evening. I finished the look with some large ornaments hanging from the adjacent tree. I may try to grab some more after Christmas. I might be crazy enough to try to get enough lights to do our entire front fence next year....only 300 or so feet. Yikes.






I love decorations with a bit of snow on them. Not so sure about the snow part itself.
