Stop those solicitors!

Does our yard look that bad? Because we have at least one landscaper ring our doorbell a week offering services.

 Don't call me. I'll call you. 

What's worse, is it's usually when my little one is napping. Ain't nobody better wake my sleeping child! Not only that, we have a bevy of religious callers, meat salesmen (really?), carpet cleaners, magazine sellers, and the like. Girl Scout cookies offered at my door are no help to my diet and if I want wrapping paper, I'll get it at the dollar store, thankyouverymuch. So, I decided that I must make myself a proper sign.

So, I found this cutting board at Goodwill for a whopping fee of $1.50. Don't break the bank!
Here she is just begging to be spray painted
I cleaned and sanded it lightly. Then I spray painted it Rustoleum gloss black. After it dried, I created the wording on MSWord and printed it out on some pretty cardstock. I cut the cardstock to fit the middle of the board and decoupaged it on. Finally I hot glued a hanger to the back and a pretty bow to the front. It's under a covered porch, so hopefully it will hold up!

I'm linking up!
