San Francisco is known to be cool, foggy and grey and as I was born and raised in the sunshine state, San Francisco's weather can be a little tough to bear. Especially when 75 degrees is what Florida winters usually feel like.
In true southern manner I keep the front door open most days to physically say, "Hello! Welcome"! Unfortunately there are some days that are a little too chilly for my blood and I have to close the door. Sadly I feel like this suggests that I am not open. In an attempt to make the front door more welcoming I pulled out some bright paints and had an arts & crafts day!
I picked up some supplies and sat down for an afternoon of fun. First I gave the wood oval a couple of coats of white paint, front and back. I then measured and taped off a 3 inch section for the aqua stripe. Next I used basic 1 inch sticker letters, spaced them out and made them as straight as possible, and painted over them with about 3 coats of aqua. I let the paint dry and pulled off the tape and stickers to reveal the white paint below. A few touch ups where the paint snuck under the tape and my new sign was done. I added 2 screw loops and some ribbon and it was ready for the front door!
I hope now if you should wander by and the front door is closed this fun sign will say, "Hello, We're Open" and you will feel welcome to walk in!
