Old Door Panel Sign

I took apart an old door that was given to me.  I love making unique signs, and I knew the panels on the door would make great signs.  The paint was chippy already, so all I had to do was sand it down and do the wording.
This panel lent itself to serving as a rack.
Since I chose the saying "Home of the Brave", I thought these rusty stars and nails would be perfect.  I did the lettering with my new brown Sharpie Paint marker.
I stained it with dark walnut color stain, and it brought out all the cracks and crevices.

I am so thankful for all the men that have served my country, so that I can enjoy the freedoms I still have.

Blessed is the Nation...

 Ever since we replaced our back porch, I have been coming up with ways to repurpose all of that old wood.  I decided to make a Betsy Ross Flag sign.  
I attached the boards together like this:
 I love that the board already had perfect lines for my stripes.
I used a pie plate to make the placement for my stars and painted them by hand.
I then came up with the saying that I wanted and used my charcoal method to apply the wording to the bottom of the flag.  After the lettering was dried, I stained the whole flag in dark walnut.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"
It measures 38 inches tall.

I just love Americana!
I think when the kiddos grow up, I am going to have a guest room in Americana.
That would be so fun to decorate.
As for this sign, it will be ready to sell at my craft sale in November.
