This beautiful rustic Lake Rules sign is made from reclaimed wood, and features eleven rules for the lake!

This handmade wood sign features several layers of paint on each piece of wood, one color layered and distressed over another to create a "just enough" worn, aged look. Rules are then painted, and the assembled sign is given a wax treatment to both accentuate color/grain & give a smoother touch to the reclaimed wood.

I hand sand, stain or paint, letter & distress each of my signs, giving them each a life of their own. Keep in mind that the actual distressing/weathering of your sign may vary from the photos, but the colors will remain the same.
The colors are rustic blue, deep brown and creamy white.

Lake Rules
Wake up smiling
Read a good book
Sit on the screen porch
Tip a canoe
Wish on stars
Jump off the dock
Slow down and relax
Go boating
Take a nature walk
Eat s'mores and ice cream
Be grateful for this day

This large sign measures approx. 34" high and 24" wide at it's widest point. A wire hanger is attached to the back for your convenience.

This listing is for one sign, in the size & design specified above. The signs depicted in the photos have already been sold, so you will receive a similar sign, in the colors shown, unless requested otherwise. The saying, font & design will be the same. But because each wood plank has different character (knots, cracks, holes, grain, etc) and each sign is hand stained, painted or distressed, your sign will not be identical to the one pictured. Great care is taken to show accurate photos using natural light, but please keep in mind different electronic devices show colors differently.
