God Bless Us, Every One! – Repurposed Sewing Machine Table Salvage Sign

In past years, I didn’t get in the Christmas decorating groove until halfway through December, but this year it kicked in earlier, thank goodness!  
As always, the first step for me in creating something is to dig through my stash of junk out in my workshop, to see what I have to work with.  I don’t usually know what I’ll make, but I grab anything that seems inspiring at the moment, so I grabbed a wooden rectangle-shaped piece that was salvage from an antique sewing machine table.

This piece was part of the “framework” that a drawer would have slid back and forth on.

 I also found a pretty decorative wooden piece.  I’m not sure what it was originally from, but it seemed perfect to add to the wood frame, so I used some E-6000 to connect it, then I painted it all white and distressed it.

I got a small piece of scrap plywood and painted it red, then used my Silhouette to make a stencil with the words, “God bless us, every one!”, then I painted that on the plywood and attached it to the back.

There were holes in the frame, where it had previously been connected to the rest of the drawer framework, so I glued some vintage buttons to cover them.

I love how it turned out!  

One of my regular customers put it on reserve right away, but another customer wanted one.  I didn’t have another piece of sewing machine salvage, so I used some antique wood to create a different style sign with the same message on it for her.

Don’t forget to come back early in the morning for the Junkers United, Christmas junk-theme event!  Here’s a sneak peek at the project I’ll be sharing at the party.

You’ll see 13 other bloggers Christmas projects, and a link party so you can share your favorite Christmas creations.  We’ll be pinning our favorites on the new Christmas board on Pinterest.  See you in the morning!
