A sign of good things to come

September 25, 2009

Today I finished painting the sign we made for the inside of the shop. It will hang above the counter where previously there was a horrible fluorescent thing advertising the ‘energy bar’ that once stood where we do now. I didn’t think too hard about it and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out – it’s fluid and unfinished and charming, which is how I would like our tea house to be also.


Maybe I will do some more work on it later… that black is awfully black! What do you think?

    Awesome sign!! Are you going to add some more colours in? That bunny might need some extra colours too…

      I don’t know about more colours as I like to still see the wood. The bunny could do with some rosy cheeks and a yellow bow around his neck, but he is a darling nonetheless.

    The sign looks great!
    I like the black. Even though at first you may think it’s too bold, if you didnt have the black, the words would not stand out.
    I like it!

      Thanks Cookie. I’m beginning to like the black, and I think that once it is in place above the counter it will look fab.
