After being a tease, I can finally reveal Becky's sign! I had the honor of meeting Becky, of Willow Avenue Pottery, yesterday. She is delightful. The grand opening of Willow Avenue Pottery is April 9th, and if you are anywhere near central Iowa you simply must stop out and see her amazing pottery. Oh...and she's also hosting a giveaway right now on her blog....you don't want to miss that!
I love how this sign turned out. I can't believe the good fortune I had several weekends ago at the ReStore. This piece of wood practically jumped into my cart, screaming "I'M FOR BECKY!!". Perfect size, perfect distressing, yay! There are lots of distressing techniques for new wood, but nothing compares to aged distressed wood...the kind that happens by accident. ALSO, this wonderful blue green background paint color hopped off the shelf at the ReStore too. Sometimes you really have to dig through the paint pile to find the good stuff. Wear your dirty clothes, bring a paint can opener and don't be shy.
The sign will soon be going up in Becky's window....I'll be sure to link you to that!
