Photo backdrop or shaby canvas for your shabby chic art masterpiece. Made with several pieces of very old Douglas fir bead board wood. This one has a nice little frame and leveling feet. I put on a couple of coats of semi-gloss polyurethane so that it don’t get any shabbier. My wife says to let you know that we can’t make this into a sign, cause the rough texture of the paint makes blisters on her fingers.
Measurements 19-1/2” wide, 16-1/2” tall and 3/4" thick, give or take a little bit. Since you can think of a dozen or so things to use this for I’m not even going to make a dang list.
It’s about 99% sure that the paint is homemade milk paint, cause (way back when) my folks couldn’t afford no fancy pants store bought paint. No you can’t get this in a different color. Uncle Wally painted this wood over 50 years ago; right before he died 20 years ago he said this is the color you wanted.
These pictures are of the actual board you will receive. You should just up and buy it cause my wife and I want this to have a nice place like yours to hang around at. It’s been hanging around or place for too damn long.
MY WIFE SAYS: Favorite this ad and she will give me a nice little HUG. Favorite our shop and I get a great big ole’ SMOOCH. Spend some dang money and/or I don't get any.
We use rustic edge wood slabs from trees that died of natural causes. We also use driftwood, salvaged barn, primitive and dumpster diver vintage wood. My wife hand routes, carves and paints the last forever letters into the wood. It’s the old-fashioned way and as Mother Nature intended, colors, textures, and character are different for every piece of wood. The coffee cup, sign stand and forest in our pictures are not included and not for sale. You can use the coffee cup to help visualize size.
We always ship USPS Priority mail, but the time we need to prepare an order for shipping varies. For details on shipping and prices, see our individual Etsy ads. For custom signs we put close estimates, because we may change the cost when we know the size and weight of the sign you purchase. We make signs more for enjoyment than as a business, so we will not hurry, there may or may not be other signs ahead of yours, if there are we won’t hurry them either. We are so confident in our work that we don’t worry about your payment until your sign is finished, if you don’t like the sign we make you don’t pay and we will just keep it for ourselves, give it a good home and treat it just like one of our own. We haven’t kept a sign yet.
We accept Direct Check-Out (credit, debit or pay pal). However, for tax purposes you could throw a big bag of 20-dollar bills on our door steps with a note about the sign you want.

Additional return information
Refunds given (grudgingly) if you return it before you get it, and paid an arm and a leg. JUST KIDDING, if you don’t like the custom sign we made for you, don’t pay us. If you already paid we will give your money back, shipping included. If it's a pre-made sign and you don't like it, we will give you a refund, shipping included. We don’t make signs for profit; we make them for our enjoyment and sell them for yours. If you don’t love the custom sign we made for you we will just keep it for ourselves, give it a good home and treat it just like one of our own.
We don’t do returns or exchanges you can cancel a custom order at any time in our artistic process. Yep, we will be awfully dang disappointed and possibly a bit ticked off, but we will get over it.
We have a 100% life time guarantee: That’s our life time (not yours) and since we are old timer’s it’s probably a fairly limited guarantee. If you are still hesitant about allowing us the pleasure of creating something special for you, please have a look at our Etsy reviews.
FOR CUSTOM SIGNS If it’s a custom sign you are interested in our price depends on the wood and what we put on it. For a price estimate and to get an idea of what type of sign you want, check out signs in our Etsy shop that other folks have purchased and send an Etsy convo. You can cut-paste-attach pictures of sign/s you like or just tell us what is on a sign/s you like. If you need a silhouette and didn’t see one you like in our shop, you can do a Google search for images, IE: horse silhouette.
We have to be sure about everything we do because one little mistake changes a beautiful piece of wood into firewood. Unfortunately Etsy convos don’t work very well for custom signs, so after we receive your first Etsy convo we will send you the email address that we will use while we are working on your sign. We are going to need the questions below answered before we can get started.
1. THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT WE WILL BE USING. 2. THE APPROXIMATE WIDTH AND HEIGHT. 3. THE EXACT WORDING. 4. THE LETTERING STYLE OR FONT. 5. THE WOOD STYLE OR TYPE. 6. ANY SILHOUETTES OR LOGOS. 7. YOUR PRICE RANGE OR BUDGET. 8. YOUR ZIP CODE FOR THE SHIPPING COST. 9. ANY ADDITIONAL INFO YOU THINK WE NEED.
