McCormick's Irish Pub

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!! 


  1. That's really cool Jen! All the little details do make it. I love the metal plaque.
