Wood Wall Signs, my favoritest DIY projects

I would have to be honest and say starting PBJstories blog has been the true take off of my DIY projects.  I've always loved decorating and designing my new homes, but between buying our first home and spreading the fun of decorating on my new blog the DIY projects have really been rolling in.
Originally I was ready to try anything and everything.  A peak back at even my last two months of projects I have done everything from painting, sewing, thrift store makeovers, creating something out of nothing, projects with the hot glue gun {the most damaging for my health fingers}, and my latest obsession: creating anything from wood.

Because I can't cover my whole house in wood, I have taken my love of working with it to making signs of various types...
Wanted to showcase some of the projects I haven't shown before that are up around my house:



{By the way! This is the first reveal I've done of my entryway, still a work in progress because I'm not totally in love with the mirror, and need some more decor for the bottom shelf, but what do you think!?}
Our entryway table also is a landing spot for some super cute decorating I've done that cost me zero dollars!  My big jar which I added some twine and vinyl saying "spare change" to help collect any extra pennies we may have coming into the house, and a big hurricane I filled with seashells and sand.
I'm loving the endless possibilities with wood and decorating!
I have 4 big projects in the process right now with more wood and can't wait to reveal them!
I wanted to link up this post with one of my favorite bloggers who is in the middle of doing a great series working with wood and different finishes. If you're not already familiar with Stephanie@Home check her out now and you can learn about some great finishes she is trying out with scrap wood.

  2. I think it looks great in your entr but if you're having second thoughts about the mirror please feel free to send it to me because I absolutely love it!

    But back on topic I love all of your signs! The one with the yellow heart is my favorite. Love how it just pops off of the wood!

    And thanks so much for linking to my Scrap Test Dummies series! I really appreciate it :)

  4. Oh my gosh, these are awesome! And the yellow heart is my favorite too! Any tips on how to make? Just a few pieces of wood, with stain? How did you get such perfect lines on the heart? Please share!!! :)

  5. Omg! I just came across this as I was looking for ideas for my family gallery wall! I never comment on anything but I had to after I saw the first pic! I'm am obsessed with Eminem, which is strange for a 32 year old mom of two, but anyway... I've been thinking about doing a song lyric from his song Space bound, " I'm a space bound rocket ship and your hearts the moon, and I'm aiming right at you", its been nagging at me for a while but after seeing yours from Love the way you lie, I'm definitely doing it! Just wanted to tell you I love it!
