I finally had some time to head over to the fun factory and finish my guillotine. Now I just need to figure out how to light it. I love the way the dark painted/stained props look during the day, but without lights you lose everything. Any suggestions on lighting will be greatly appreciated. It's going to be placed right in front of my doorway. I have three overhead lights in my entrance. I was thinking about replacing the bulbs with some colored ones. Any thoughts?

That looks great. If your overhead lights are not enough can you get one of those landscaping lights that you can tilt and point it on your sign?

lol the sign!! The whole thing turned out real great! :)

How did you make the sign?
Thanks to Nightfisher's inspiration I made the sign out of pink foam. I cut and chipped away at the foam until it looked liked weathered boards. Painted the whole thing black and went over it lightly with a brush and brown paint. The letters were routed out using stencils and a dremel tool.
