3’ x 3’ Local Farm Sign

Hi everyone! I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted and my Facebook and Instagram have been pretty much devoted to my wood farmhouse signs. I wanted to post an update here because if any of you come to this blog, it has a lot to do with diy projects and not much else.

I started making Farmhouse Signs back in February when an old classmate of mine reached out to me. She was opening up a home decor and design store in her hometown, Roxbury CT called The Little White Cabin. She wanted to see if I could make her farmhouse signs and modern farmhouse decor items. I was intrigued and said yes!

Fast Forward to a few weeks ago when I was contacted by a local meat farm in Canaan, CT. Howling Flats Farm was looking for a custom sign to display at their entrance. I was ecstatic! This was my biggest Project yet and I was ready to tackle it!
