Vintage Black Store Sign


I don't have a lot of BLACK in my decorating scheme.....
I do have a lot of black pots and pans, but I don't think they qualify as vintage or interesting.

I do have a vintage store sign that came from New Hampshire a number of years ago.
It is one solid piece of lumber that is 17" wide.
I love the chippy vintage patina and the handpainted aspect of this sign, so
although I didn't make this sign, it is one of my all time favorites.



Thanks for stopping by for Saturday Night Special!

  8. I love the sign. Of course I am a Maine girl so I would like a NH sign. Great job in posting. I had posted mine early this morning but only realized just now that I didn't do McLinky, so please be sure to stop over and say hi and please forgive my late arrival. Thanks so much.

  10. Thanks so much for all your nice remarks! It is a fun piece and pretty "rough" and tattered, but I just love to mix the plain with the fancy. :-)

  16. Hi Candy,

    I have an old apple sign that I adore. The paint is chippy and coming up in spots. Do you do anything special to clean and protect your sign? Thanks for any help you can provide. Love the music and your tables. Wishing you a spooky night!

  17. Hi Suzie -

    Thanks for stopping by! Several years ago I had to address the "chippiness" and acumulated dust on my sign. I very gently wiped it down with an old diaper lightly sprayed with Windex. I then let it dry thoroughly and sprayed it with a very light coat of clear aerosol sealer with a matte finish. It seemed to stabilize all the chips and makes it easy to just dust off every now and then.
