If you’re Canadian, you’ll appreciate this humorous DIY sign by Kim from The Painted Poppy Studio! She used Simplicity, Liquorice, and Devotion for this project.

Hi everyone! It’s Kim from The Painted Poppy Studio back with you today to show you my most recent custom sign. I was contacted by a neighbour who also happens to be a member of the RCMP regarding a sign that she had seen on Pinterest. She loved the wording but the sign, but the design itself was not to her style so she asked me to design something that would fit more with what she had in mind.

This sign is on the larger size and measures 16″ x 30″ and is made with one pine board. These can be found in your shelving department at almost any big box hardware store, in my case it was at my local Home Depot. These are what I use for many of my larger signs and you can buy them in various lengths and the store will cut them to size for you. This is a great option to save on some time.

My customer was looking for something with bold text as well as a script and wanted red, black and white. I painted the sign with Liquorice (AIO), Simplicity (Chalk Style) and I ended up using the very last of my Devotion (Chalk Style) to finish it up with that wonderful punch of red.

The sign was going to be hung indoors so I sealed it up with Natural Wax, added my hanging hardware and called it a day. I love the sense of humor in the wording and I hope that it hangs in a place of pride in her home 🙂
