{ Dwindling Summer.. & A Simple DIY Herb Sign.. }

Heyyy you all!! I hope you guys are enjoying the last bit of summer, it's been super cool & fall like here in the north & I'M IN LOVE!! I'm one of those weird types who love the fall AND winter haha eek! As I was gathering & cleaning the kitchen/dinging room up for some fall decor  { Yep, September first I start } I found this cute little herb sign I had made about three years ago..It was one of , if not my very first DIY blog project even before I started my  actual website!! I realized that I never officially blogged it so I am today!! It's a short & simple post ,but I thought I would give it some love since, it's one of my favorite neutral cottage/ farmhouse signs to use all over the kitchen year & year!! 


I thought it looked cute paired with the willow branches for the last few week's of summer..It's so neutral & was super simple to make!! I got this piece of wood with the hooks already on it at +Big Lots  for $1 , &  sanded the blue color off & painted it with cream paint. I used some black & then distressed & smudged the lettering etc..I love the weathered, imperfect/farmhouse appeal!



This pry is a little scary haha, but I just slid/wedged the sign to the top of the latter..no worries it's not above any heads..right?! ;) 


Have a great rest of the week & dwindling summer days..I can't wait to share with you all what I'm doing for our fall dining room..it's nifty!!! Are you guys ready for fall EVERYTHING? Or are you hanging on to summer still?
