DIY Scrap Wood Painted Chicken Sign


I hate to throw anything away, even if it's an old broken fence board. I love this DIY project because you can make the sign any size you want to, paint it any color you want...depending on what you have available. And it makes a really cute sign for your coop or to advertise your fresh eggs.


This project is so easy, a tutorial isn't even really needed...but here goes!

What you Need:

Several boards cut to the same length (I used three pieces of fence board, but you could also use a pallet or other scrap wood, even a piece of plywood)
Two smaller pieces of board cut the width of your finished sign
Wood Screws
Paint
Small Paintbrush
Clear polyurethane

What you Do:

Line up your boards the way you want them, then flip them over and screw your two shorter boards to the back to secure your sign boards in place. Paint the front of your sign and let dry - you can use exterior paint, spray paint, whatever you wish. 

Trace or draw freehand your chicken silhouette and any wording you want to use, then paint it in a contrasting color. When completely dry, spray with a coat or two of clear polyurethane to seal. You can just lean your sign as I have done, or affix a picture hanger to the back to hang it.

Cost: $0

-screw the brace boards to the back once you line up your sign boards the way you want them-
-that should do it!-
-paint your background color then draw or trace the chicken and paint in a contrasting color-
-yes, that's paint on my fingers. I'm a fairly messy painter!-
-Seal with clear polyurethane-
-Don't worry about imperfections, it's supposed to be rustic-

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children.

  6. PLEASE BEWARE OF SCAMS TRYING TO GET YOUR EX BACK?

    I was married to my husband for 10 years and we were both bless with two children, living together as one love, until two months ago when things was no longer the way it was [ when he lost his job ]. But when he later gets a new job 6 months after, he started sleeping outside our matrimonial home which really drives me crazy. Only for me to find out that he was having an affair with the lady that gave him the job. I was really devastated and tried everything to make my husband comes back home but all to no avail, i became shattered and keep doing my best to get my husband back. Few weeks later i was on my Facebook chatting with my mum regarding the present situation, i came across the comment made by Mrs Brenzel Briditte on you tube that Dr. Okirika helped her bring back her husband with the sum of $170. So i copied the email address and contacted him few hours later he really replied me and i told him about the issue am having with my husband and he told me to send information's and along with the sum of $170 to help me get some items needed for the items but i was skeptical because i have heard where a lot of people loose their money to scammers .But due to the fact that i wanted my husband back, i had no choice than to give it a try after seeing Brenzel's Comment. And without hesitation, i sent everything along with the money. Two days later in the evening, i was at home preparing dinner for my kids when i heard a knock on my door and on getting there i thought i was hallucinating when i saw my husband standing before me and asked if he could come inside and urgently i opened and let him in while he went on his knees begging for forgiveness that he wants to come back home and pleaded that he will never hurt my feelings again. To make every story short, me and my Husband are now back together happy more than ever before. Please do not be deceived. Contact Dr.Okirika and ready to pay $170 and you will have your ex back.

He no longer calls nor texts me. And I wanted him so bad..I will stay up through the whole night, won't close my eyes and couldn't survive it anymore, and I was ready to walk through fire just to save my Marriage. I did everything I can cos It was really hard to cope and lose a chosen one.. But now, I finally thank God and the Whole universe for sending this spell caster Dr Brave out of the blue and he did cast a Love spell for me and made my Husband did call me the few minutes after he rounded up the spell casting for me, and he felt so sorry and remorseful for ever leaving me, and he told me how much he loves me and said he miss me so much..And this spell caster rekindled our feelings and made me so special in the Sight of my husband.

    My passion for love and life has made me to take to the internet to
    warn internet users particularly those in search of solution to their
    problems to beware of and avoid comments about spell caster that can
    use their magical power in helping you out with your problems. I don't
    want anyone to be fooled because i was a victim of this fraudsters
    who claimed to be spell casters. I am Wimberly William and i was having
    a difficult time in my relationship as my wife couldn't give birth to a
    child. Although my wife and i loved each other very much as it were.We kept on
    hoping and for 6years there weren't any sign of breakthrough .As days
    goes by,i will always weep because at that time i was really down.
    Even though my wife tried to always be by my side,only time would
    tell as we couldn't cope with pressure coming from friends and she had to leave
    me for another man. I was now left to face my problem alone even
    though my mom would always talk to me and console me on phone. Things
    went from bad to worse when i was sacked from the private organization
    i was working because been happily married was a criteria that was
    needed and that i was now lacking owing to my failure to have a child that has made my
    wife leave me for another man leaving me single. I kept on
    searching and hoping i would find a solution to my problem but there
    wasn't any coming. I contacted lots of spell caster as i saw them on
    the internet but all were scams as they demanded money from me
    frequently and nothing happened. i had to relocate from Texas city
    United state to Jamaica where my mom was residing and also because i
    became racially abused because of my color .I spent 4 months with my
    mom and together we kept on looking for solution still to no avail.
    There came a faithful day when i met my high school mate who knew i
    was happily married and living in Texas city United state with my
    wife and had to ask why i flew back to Jamaica. I explained my
    problem to her and with sincere desire in wanting my problems solved
    she led me to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI. Although i was doubtful but soon as i
    explained my problem to him,he laughed and gave me a maximum of
    72hours for my wife to come back and for she go give birth. I
    did all i was asked to do which included me traveling back to Texas
    city United state. I traveled back to Texas city united state,on my
    arrival during the early hours of the morning,my phone rang and guess
    who?it was my wife who called asking for my forgiveness and saying
    she was coming back home. She came few hours later and on her knees she
    pleaded for forgiveness. Although it was a tough decision for me to
    make because of all the pains i have been through. I love her and
    needed her back so i had no option but to forgive her. We sat together
    and while she was resting her head on my chest we had romantic
    conversation and talked about things that we have never spoken about
    and like husband and wife the urge came to have sex and we had sex for
    a very long time that day. The next day which was still within the
    72hours given by DOCTOR JAMIN ABAYOMI she felt something different in her
    body and immediately she went for a check up and to our greatest
    surprise,she was pregnant. How possible could this be but it happened
    and am very thankful also my skin color that made me racially abused
    was changed to the preferred and now we are now happily married again
    and no racially discrimination. All thanks to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI for his
    solution.
    ARE YOU FACED WITH SIMILAR PROBLEM OR ANY KIND OF PROBLEM.PLEASE KNOW
    THAT DR JAMIN ABAYOMI isn't on the internet so kindly contact him via
    EMAIL:drjaminremedy@outlook.com

    My name is Lucia Echevarria from USA. Am here to share my testimony to the world of how God has used Doctor Ebakor to restore my relationship. My boyfriend left me for another lady after 2 years of our relationship. I was filled with tears and remorse because of the heart break he gave to me. I decided to look for a way to bring my boyfriend back. I was surfing on the internet and i came across a post of how Doctor Ebakor helped a lady to get back her EX lover i was really amazed towards the post so, i decided to try what i read about the post and i contacted Doctor Ebakor and explained everything to him.. To cut the story short, Doctor Ebakor told me that i will get back my boyfriend within 12 to 16 hours after he has finished preparing the spell at first i thought he was joking because i have never seen such power before coming into existence except from TV shows. Immediately Doctor Ebakor told me that he has finished with the spell, 9 hours later, my boyfriend called me and began to plead and cry that i should forgive him for everything he has done that he is ready to stay with me for the rest of his life. Still yet i was not satisfied. I heard a knock on my door and guess what it was my boyfriend who i thought i have already lost and now we are living happily as never before. Viewers reading my article and want the help of Doctor Ebakor the spell caster should contact him now ASAP via his email address [ Doctorebakorspelltemple@hotmail.com ]. This is my Mobile number (603) 567-4715 in case you need to know more of how Doctor Ebakor helped me.
