Quick Make - Folk Art Toilet Sign

I started out with a hunk of floorboard I found in the bin and some buttons (natch).



I painted the wood in Farrow and Ball, sanded it back when it was dry and highlighted the edges by 'dry brushing' some gold paint across the woodgrain.


I decoupaged the male and female symbols with decorators PVA and glued the button dividing line in place.




Tada!

I am posting this on the Handmade Monday Linky Party - pop over and see what other people are making this week.

Such a great way to use up 'found bits' and it looks lovely. Hope you have a good week.
