Hand painted lemonade sign. We thought this would look fab at a rustic country summer event. This is for the hire of the sign only to allow you to experiment with making your own stand to serve lemonade from. We have used old tea chests with a wooden door balanced across or barrels with a plank across, or the sign looks perfect perched on this old pallet (pallet not included, sorry!).

How to make an antique sign. After painting the sign (full tutorial included), use a soft cloth to apply a dark brown furniture wax in a thin layer to entire surface of sign.  The wax will settle in the imperfections in the wood, giving the sign an authentically aged look.  Allow wax to dry for 3-5 minutes, then buff to a shine with a clean cloth.
