Day 19 - A Bushel and a Peck Signs

Continuting our 31 days of signs, here's a few more signs for inspiration!
Last year I made a "Bushel and a Peck" sign for a customer (and former roomate/amazing friend!), and I was inspired to make a few more!
I can't even remember what colors I used on her sign because I made it so quickly and shipped it out without a picture! Oops!

This gray and purple one, I made using my first ever DIY chalk paint. I used baking soada, a little water and purple paint, and I love the way it distressed and shows the wood grain! The gray is spray paint over top of the chalk paint, and it was so much easier to work with than usual!

I created my own stencils with this method to make these signs.
