Kathye, another take off of that could be using smashed pool tiles or stained glass.

You could try using marbles or fish tank gravels......some are very beautiful and look like "flat" marbles.

OK back to the frame, where did you find the cabinets? Did you buy them new? Or is this just a frame with something else for the backing?

I am confused (always)
as to how you were able to lay your materials down and grout, with them being "flat" and not coming out thicker than the frame itself.

That is just BEAUTIFUL!!! What a wonderful craft idea!!!

How did you do up the name? Looks like it's a rectangular brick...or is that what you consider grout? (Please pardon the dumb question!
) Is the name painted on with stencils...I can't tell?

Wanna come build a barn for me????


I LOVE the signs!! Details, please - so you use cabinet doors - what material are you using for the stone finish look? What are you using for the engraving?

Good job!!!

Man I wish you guys would quit with the "good ideas" I'm getting tired. It looks like the letters are done with paint, is that right? I have a bunch of broken terra cotta pots I maybe able to recycle now. Thanks for the idea.

Very cool.
I am close enough to come look at yours, may have to do that! I would love to have a farm sign for my new barn.

WOW! That's a great idea! We are putting up a new barn now, and that gives me some great thoughts on how to make our stuff unique. One question - what doe you use to waterproof? You definitely wouldn't want it to get weather beaten or faded, and being in Illinois, that would happen here.

The coffee table and other decorations are great looking too. You could set up a booth at Nationals and rake in a fortune!!

Great Job!

Those are just amazing. THIS is definitely a marketable idea. Just think of the new horses you could buy!
