Wood Quote Sign

You may have seen this before when I featured to on Vintage Zest a couple of months ago, but in case you missed it, take a look.  I don't know about you, but I just love wood quote signs.  Just add the trendy ombre pattern to it  and it makes it that much better!  I have so many quote signs all over my house and what makes a better saying than "This is our happily ever after"!  It's such a simple sign project, give it a try!!
Wood Quote Sign




I have a serious problem of grabbing wood signs of any sort, in hopes that some day I'll come up with a project to give them new life!!  For the most part there's usually something hideous on them, maybe from the 80's or even older!!  As ugly as it is, just remember, you can always just paint right over it.  For this one, I paid a whopping fifty cents!
To start, I took a few shades of yellow and painted them on in an ombre pattern across my sign.  After dry, place stickers on top of the sign to read what ever quote you'd like.  After all of the stickers are applied, give it a coat of spray paint right over the top.  Of course, to match your color scheme.  After your sign is totally dry, peel off your stickers, leaving the ombre paint showing through.  
This is a great project for you or simple enough for your kids!  These wood quote signs make a great gift, maybe for a wedding or a new baby.  You options are endless as far as your quote goes.  Have Fun!!
