12 Vintage Signs – for Project inspiration

I love old signs and think they make really great decorative pieces. I am almost finished with my kitchen, but I really want to add a “fresh eggs” sign, of something similar before calling it done. I also like several of these ideas for the living room, and I’m constantly looking for inspiration. As I’ve been collecting all of these I thought the best place the save them would be here, on my blog. The bonus is that I get to share these faves with you too!

None of the signs listed here were made by me. Here are the signs I have made.

Here are some really awesome looking signs I’ve found. Some are DIY projects made by talented bloggers and some I found elsewhere. I think they provide some great inspiration. As you can see I really like the distressed, aged look. If you’ve found any awesome looking signs, please share the link in the comments!

    I LOVE your blog! I also love the old distressed looking signs.. I think my favorite one was your EAT sign! I tried to replicate it but it didn't turn out so good.. I plan on attempting to make it again if i ever get a silhouette!!
