DIY Hand Painted Sign WIth Quote

This sign is a great thing to wake up to in the morning, not really the sign but the quote. It's so inspiring, I love it.

DIY Hand Painted Sign With Quote

This sign started out as a longish board I found in our shop

 I cut the board with our table saw, then I hand sanded and primed it
 I painted the sign green and I stenciled the quote onto the board

 After I filled in the stenciled area with paint I hand painted the vine and flowers

And of course I hand painted the year on this baby. I'm sorry I don't have step by step pictures up for you guys to see, the first several photos are taken with my older camera so they're not all that great, the finished sign is taken with the new camera, hurray for new camera!!

This quote is very inspirational to me and was written by Thomas Edison

Do you have a favorite quote you live by?
