Recycled and Handmade Garden Signs


We collected some broken pallets that were being thrown out and I have worked with my son's fiance to create signs for the garden. We had the pallets pulled apart and sanded and then dusted them off before working on the designs. As we  have more and more people wanting to look at the garden and learn about aspects we thought signs would be helpful. These are the front of the first ones that we have created, it is quite difficult to choose which signs  will be the most useful to create. We settled on these first and I did the words with Xinmei doing the art work. We are really pleased with them. The next stage will be putting the functions on the back of each sign and then drilling holes and putting chain up for hanging and then finally lacquering to protect them from the weather.
