Open For Business
I just finished this sign for the Red Door Salon. Bethany wanted a tin sign that could be hung outdoors on a wire mannequin. One side needed to say "open" and she wanted to be able to flip it over for when they went to lunch. What a great idea!
I found a tin sign at Hobby Lobby that had a neutral pattern on the front. I sanded the slick finish off so the paint would stick, taped off a small border and went to work. The back side of the sign was plain brown. I know they are using animal prints in the salon, so I gave them a neutral giraffe patterned background.
I sprayed with three coats of clear polyurethane since it is going to be fully exposed to the elements. I really like how it turned out! I drive by the Red Door every morning and afternoon on my way to and from work...it makes me smile to see it out there!
