Repurposing a Metal Sign

I recently freshened the hall bath by taking down all the coastal decor and replacing it with Farmhouse decor.     Since I was already working on the bathroom,   I decided to take the time to clean and oragnaize the cabinets in there as well.      I hadn't looked on the top shelf of one of the cabinets in a long long time.    I found lots of stuff way up there that I forgot  that I even had.....does that ever happen to you?

I had a Paris theme in the bathroom several years ago and I found quite a few things that I hadn't given to my daughter to decorate her home with.      She has since got rid of most of her Paris decor and took most of the coastal decor that I had to decorate her bath,   bedroom,   and Ky's bedroom.      

Anyway,   I decided to try to recycle my bathtub sign and I wanted to share what I came up with!

I wanted to be able to change my sign with the seasons or holidays.      So,   I used magnets to attach a pretty wallpaper print that can be changed out easily.

I layered a frame over the metal sign.....both fit nicely in an easel from Hobby Lobby. .     

The cute Tilda prints that I used for my project can be found here.........

Here's my finished picture......

I have Tilda and her greenhouse in the frame.......

I added a garland of spring veggies across the top of the frame......

WA   LA!

I flipped my metal sign over  and used the back to create a different look......

I printed off another sheet of Tilda,   cut it apart,   and glued it on to Valentine background.

I used a magnet to attach Valentine cards on each side of my hand made card.....

My Tilda is surrounded by flying cows,    bee hives,   bee's,   and jars of honey.

I will leave the Valentine creation out for a couple of weeks and then turn it around to reveal the spring side!


  1. Cute idea, Penny. I finally got so many things sorted out as we prepare to move and downsize...stuff I forgot all about until I pulled it off a shelf. You are not alone! xo Diana

  2. Cute idea, Penny! I noticed in the picture taken in your kitchen a "Farm Charm" sign. Did you make this or can you tell me where you got it? I love it!!
