My mom helped me design it on a shelf at the store. We got all the pieces, paint, and letters there. Then we got the hooks at a nearby Ace Hardware.
I mixed up this particular shade of gray. My mom showed me how to white-wash the wood to give it that aged look. I actually mixed most of the colors for the words too, as the colors ended up a bit darker then I wanted so I lightened them up with a little mix of white. We used just basic wood glue to glue everything on once we had the sign screwed together. The last step we drilled really thin holes, and spun the wire through to make the hanging loops.
I absolutely love how it came out, and it is extremely special to me since it was the last thing my mom helped me make. It was such a fun day, and such good memories with her, shortly before she passed away.
