I dont know what is it with me, but i always seem to fall for things that aren't available here in Singapore, or perhaps i just dont know about them even if they do exist. When i first started to move into my long awaited flat, i stumbled upon (well erm i kinda searched for it actually) an etsy seller based in US, who makes gorgeous vintage handmade signs. I looked high and low for such sellers based locally but i couldnt, and i certainly feel for those who wish for the same thing- IF there are any that is (or am i really the only one?) ;p . I was truly inspired to have a go at it, after receiving it.
I go weak at 2 things (my husband will tell you there are actually more): first- sweet vintage and second: rustic vintage, farmhouse stuffs. So these are the 2 designs im starting my hands at. I owe my big sister for a lot of things, mainly her advices and listening ear (read:whatsapp messages). So I wanted to 'dedicate' my first, so called perfected (in my definition of course hehe..) handmade sign. I did a sweet shabby chic style for her and this was how it turned out to be inititally.
I should have just distressed it a bit and waxed it, but my hands were itching to make it better and i ended up ruining it instead. So i decided to make another one, a rustic farmhouse look and this was how it turned out.
Im not sure if my sister likes this look, but im happy with how it turned out heh... I have a few planks of wood to play around with, so do let me know if you would like to have one for yourself ;)
