I was recently contacted by a very sweet Coloradian (is that what people from Colorado are called?)...she was interested in a very special gift for Father's Day. Lots of fun details to work with on this one....Irish submariner, currently building a pub in his basement! Perfect combo for a neat sign.
I started with this. A little vision might help at this point. ;-) I cleaned, cleaned, cleaned the wood.
And painted, painted, painted.
After the "aging" process.
Do you recognize that little doodad? Makes a really neat plaquard....
but it started life as a cabinet hardware escutcheon!
The little details are my favorite. I hope this special dad enjoys his gift!!
