That's a great idea, Cathy! I never thought about re-creating one of those boring historical marker signs.
That'll look excellent after it's painted!

You mean you're not going to leave it refrigerator-alphabet color? :D

That looks great - the font looks just like the kind they use on those signs.

Nice job cathy on the sign. Will look great painted. I can't believe you cut them all out......so patient and perfect! One thing that would look good on it. Get some thick wire that you can still bend and make a scroll design on the top of it to give it a wrought iron feel.......making your arthritic hands work even more:p

That is BRILLIANT!!! Wow! Talk about 'setting the scene'.

I too think the black with bronze would look fantastic. Is there a standard color for historical markers in your state? (I have no idea about this ~ the thought just popped into my head.)

I cannot believe you handmade all the letters. Now that's commitment!! Love it! Thank you for sharing!!

I love this idea! I do believe the black with gold lettering would look sharp!!! This gives a haunt a certain authenticity!!!

Thank you everyone . :)
Dave- LOL. Unfortunately, you are correct. LOL
Halloween Lady- lol... I'm sure I have a smart a$$ comment about tumblin, but I just can't think of it right now. :D j/k



Well, still have to do some touch- ups. Then I think I'll spray it with a satin clear spray. But this is it for now. I used gold spray paint for the letters , so I have been huffing all day. :D I should do that more often.. way cheaper than alcohol. :D To all the kiddies out there: I am kidding. ;) (yeah right. I legally have to put in a disclaimer. :D)
