I don't know about you, but the wet, rainy weather here in Scituate has got me down. Perhaps, I suffer from seasonal affected disorder. Perhaps, it was the fantastic summer weather we experienced in March! I don't know the reason, but I really want the sun to be shining.
To pick myself up and think happy beachy thoughts - I made some beach signs for the shop. I used the same method I used for the boys' toy chest.

Except instead of starting with ASCP Old White, I used Graphite. It was so much fun to use all my favorite chalk paint colors.
The soothing and serene Duck Egg Blue:
Cheerful and happy Greek Blue:
Classy and chic Provence:
Then the beautiful Paris Grey:
Each sign lightly distressed for that relaxed beachy look. I'm going to give people the option of twine to hang, but I really love how they look propped on a shelf or side table. I love that haphazard look.
Despite the rain falling outside, I almost felt like it was time for the beach inside. I could imagine the warm sun on my back, the sand between my toes, the sound of my boys giggling at the crabs and the smell of coconut sun tan lotion. I could really use a beach day. Could you?
