Transformation Thursday - From Shelf to Sign

A few years back, Marc and I bought these great unfinished floating shelves at Michael's. We used them in our dining room in Waco for about a year. They never quite would hang right. They always sagged no matter what we did.

We took them down last summer (in 2008), and Marc suggested that I should save them to make one of those painted signs I am always admiring. (What he really meant was that he was getting tired of my pointing them out and saying, "I could do that!" and then never doing it.) So they were saved from a trip to Goodwill.

When I painted our headboard a few months ago, I also painted one of the boards so I could make a sign for our bedroom. Today, after all my spatchcocking and Christmas decorating, I was in the mood to do a project. So I made the sign! Here it is!

I love it! You did a great job. That is such a great saying and very appropriate. Marc was really smart to suggest that you save the board. Of course, he may live to regret suggesting that you be a "saver". From personal experience I can tell you it can get the best of you. However, I'm sure you will be wiser in your saving "stuff". Great sign!
Love, Mom :-)

That looks great! I know all about those "I can do that" projects and rarely get to them.

I do love that feeling of finally getting something finished, though.

Good job!
