How to Make a Personalized Wood Sign

Sabrina, from Meet our Life, does rustic style beautifully! This personalized wood sign is no exception. Beyond the fact that it is a simple, classic, customized gift, I also love that Sabrina’s tutorial includes reclaimed wood. 

When I was young, my grandparents had a barn on their property. After a fire late in my grandmother’s life, my aunt collected several pieces of reclaimed wood from the barn. She hired an artist to paint pictures of the family home onto the reclaimed wood. 

If you have salvaged wood from a family home, piece of furniture, etc… how perfect would it be for a family name wooden sign?
