Lion Coffee Sign

I thought I would share my latest hand painted sign with you today.  It’s a big one…about five feet long!
I used an antique Christmas coffee ad I found at The Graphics Fairy

I cropped the text and put it in my projector to transfer it to my board. 
I found this awesome door at an antique store a few weeks ago.  It was painted in the prettiest chalky blue and had really cool hinges.  Honestly, I’ve been hoarding it for myself, but it’s just been sitting in my office and I needed things to take to Lucketts, so I had to let it go. 
Donna, I know you’re suffering from rust envy.  Just go snuggle with one of your bolts and you’ll be okay. 

Oh…it looked so perfect in my house.  Sigh. 
Can’t keep ’em all. 
If you’re interested in making an “old” sign of your own, check out my post on The Making of a Sign.  If you must have this one, it’s for sale at The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia.

  1. Love to read about your source. I'm off to the Graphics Fairy right now. But you complete the piece with that hardware – perfect. Curious since there's no Lucketts in my near future – how much does something like this sell for?

  2. Beautiful! I'm looking for just the right vintage style coffee sign for my kitchen. This would be perfection. If only I could get to Lucketts from AK! You are a master of design Marian.

  3. Very pretty. Thanks to your inspiration I began ripping the upholstery off a chair today. Looks pretty daunting, but I'm going to give it a try. You really have been an inspiration to me.

  5. This is the second blog tonight that talked about the graphics fairy. I'm headed there next. What an awesome job you did. It looks so professional.

  6. WOW!!! love, love, love the sign. I emailed you a while back about making a sign on an antique window. It turned out great and my Bunko friend loved it. Forgot to take an after pic :(…I will have to go to her house for one…thanks again for all your great ideas and inspiration!!!

  7. THAT'S IT!!!!
    I officially don't believe you have children… That boy in the living room picture?? You rented him didn't you?? Fess up!

    I'm kidding of course!!

    You just make MUCH better use of your time!!!

  8. Oh, the audacity of it all! (did I spell that right? No squiggly spell checker came on… unreal)

    LOVE this one big time. And it sure does fit nicely above that piano… you have nerves of steel.


  9. okay…you seriously do not stop do you…this sign is so awesome, but more importantly is your inspiration for this mother as well – you are a mom too, and when I see other moms creating it really does inspire me! so thanks!

    (why don't you have your own shop??) or do you…and I don't know about it?

  10. Beautiful!! I fell in love with the sign as soon as I saw it in Reader! I didn't imagine it was that long until I saw the fourth photo. I admire you for letting it go…I don't think I could have been that strong!

  11. Hi there, I think your blog is fantastic and inspiring and have awarded you the stylish blog award.
    The award is supposed to be passed on by nominees to 7 other bloggers who they think are inspiring. The nominees are also asked to tell 7 things about themselves!!
    Have a great day and keep on doing your great blog!!

  12. Loving your blog! I just started my own blog with my fantastic crystal and shell bottle art. I'd love it if you could stop by, and if you like them, follow! 🙂 Off to read more! xoxo, The Crystal Crate.

  13. It is beautiful! The patina, the color, the rust.. I will be using your sign making tips when I venture into sign making one of these days! Although, I wish I had a projector!!

  14. I love a lot of the things you do, but have seriously fallen in love with the signs. This summer I absolutely must find myself a projector to try my hand at making some myself.

  15. Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful! Love the old wood with the rusty hinges, and your painting job is out of this world. so wish I could get to your store!
    visiting from the Graphics Fairy. TFS!
