I enjoy this time of year with the humidity fading away and life getting back to a somewhat normal routine, with kids going back to school and a slower pace during the work/school week. I crave down time sitting on either my porch swing or rocker reading, surfing, blogging and creating. I totally could be home for days and be happy. So, with that in mind I wanted a sign for the porch to reflect that. I have a bunch of pallets thanks to Dad and made this sign “Enjoy the Quiet”. To remind myself to take a step back every now and again and be thankful for all of life’s blessings!

I was looking for a small table to put in my master bath for extra storage and found this old table that was in desperate need of a facelift! I gave it a coat of my favorite Annie Sloan old white, sanded it for the shabby chic look I was going for and used a dark wax. Linking to thegraphicsfairy.com for Brag Monday.
I love making signs out of old wood and lucky for me my dad came through for me again with a bunch of old pallets. They make the best signs, love the character with chips and nail holes! My new favorite Annie Sloan paint color is duck egg blue, so when my friend asked me to make her a sign for her “water closet” and said she loved that color, I was psyched! I aged it with dark wax and finishing paste.
