You know those projects that you start & then two months later you see it lying there unfinished & you decided to finally complete it? Yah. So I started these DIY “nest signs” about two months ago & today I decided to finally complete them so I thought why not share them here on the blog. Oh & don’t think the signs were unfinished because they were difficult. No, these nest signs are the easiest thing in the world,it’s just my DIY ADD sets in & yah, things get pushed to the side. So on to this simple sign & how I made it. The best part? You can totally customize it to what you want it to say & these are literally made from wood scraps that were on my garage floor, I’ll count that as free…
To make these signs I gathered up some scrap plywood we had in our garage. I had Mr. LMB cut me 5 rectangles out of the plywood. One long one & 4 small ones that added up to the size of the long one. On the 4 small pieces of plywood I first pained them white & then used my stencils to put the individual letters on each one. This is where you can get creative. You could spell someones name, write your favorite word, I mean the list goes on. I then used a staple gun to adhere the pieces of plywood with the letters on it to the large piece of plywood. Make sense? If I had done this project all in one day then I might have had better photos. But you get the idea. The stencils are from Home Depot & the paint I used is all chalk paint from Maison Blanche.
These are things I come up with on rainy afternoons because I always have to be doing something & this nest sign was just a product of me wanting to try a new twist on making signs. I like them simple & cute & this one is just that.
Ok, enough about my nest sign, but I just think they are so cute. I hope you all get to make one of your own & if you do be sure to tag me wherever you decided to share it. Thank you for stopping by the blog today & thank you for being awesome & following along with my little creative outlet. Be sure to let me know what you think of the sign in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. xx

I have got a lot of projects that I started and unfortunatelly never finished them. The longer you leave them behind the harder it is to come back to them.
Your projects are great, easy to do but the effect is amazing:-)
