Here's a fun BIG sign for those of you who take your Western theme decoratingSatNiteSpecial-lg,double lines lower right.JPG  Design ©Austin Originals.  All rights reserved. seriously!  This is a heavy sign (ship. wt. 2#) since it measures16½"x 5½" x ¾" thick.  The signboard is pretty smooth but is beginning to split at one end and has a couple knots and surface defects.  So I added to the "vintage look" by sanding it pretty heavily on the front and ends.  You can picture someone way back when pulling it out of the lumber pile fpr a quick "make-do" sign--and here it still is today!  Here's hoping it'll be hanging around a lot longer, too!   How 'bout making that at your digs? Wire hanger brings it to 10" overall hanging length.  Edges are painted black.  Matte finish.  Click on image to see enlargment

 Hot Bath sign-Red,wh,blue3 stars.  ©Austin Originals.  All rights reserved.
Here's a bright, fresh looking "antique" sign done in off-white, red, and midnight blue.  It has an interesting surface (completely smooth areas alternating with others with knots and other imperfections).  With the satin glaze added, it makes the wood grain visible.  Because it was so over-all fresh in appearance, I decided to give it very minimal scuffing up, as if someone had treated it with some respect in its years of service.  Sign measures 7¾" high x 10" wide x 3/8" thick.  Hanging length ~ 14¾".
