First let me say that I love Behr’s Barn & Fence paint. It only come in red or white and is not sold in all Home Depot stores. I used the white last year on my pumpkin patch fence and my potting bench. It goes on thick and has great coverage, even on this old wood. And it’s only $15 gal.
I had a left over 2x6x10 from my deck and I’ve been wanting to put a board across the top of the garden entrance to define it more and to hang a sign. So I cut it to size, painted and my neighbor helped me lift it into place. Yes, that is “iced coffee”!! YUM
I love the overhead board and the fresh paint. I didn’t, however, love that my sign was too dark and kind of disappeared into the landscape.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned in the past that spray paint is my best friend, soooooo I had some high gloss white spray paint. I painted it, let it dry and then took some sandpaper and ran it over some of the high points – just to knock off some of the shine.
One of my friends/coworkers (Mamma Mia) found this sign for me over a year ago at an antique shop. It’s been hanging in my house and my intentions were always to have it hang over the garden entrance. Yahoo!!!
