Happy Thursday, friends! Today I want to share with you a quick and easy project. It’s how to “make” a sign for a sensitive septic system. Come check it out!
Our lake house, aka Happy Hill is over 50 years old and so is its septic system. When we have a lot of company it really taxes our vintage septic tank. So, I decided to make some signs to politely remind our potential future renters and guests to please keep this in mind. We started to hand write them, but then I decided to look and see if there was an attractive sign already made that we could use instead. And, I found this one on Amazon! Perfect. (The sign is $16.98 on Amazon and measures 5×7″.)
I found this frame at the thrift store for a few dollars and think it will be perfect for my sign! But first, paint!
Much better, right? I used a can of spray paint I had on hand and gave the frame a few light coats. The color is called, “Blossom White” in a satin finish by Rusto-leum.
And here’s how it turned out! The kitchen sign sits above the sink in our cute little greenhouse window. I like how the sign says, “pretty please”.
The sign is pretty, yet discreet. So, in case you have a rental property, these signs are perfect for conveying an important message in a nice way. They come with double stick command strips so you can attach them directly to the wall if you choose instead of a frame. Me? I like a pretty frame!
They even make a sign for the toilet! I ordered one but I need two more, plus frames. Kind of a fancy way to say something delicate, don’t you think?
I think the signs will be a good reminder to please be gentle with an aging septic system because a lot of people wouldn’t think of it otherwise.
Well, that’s a wrap for today. I have a few other projects at the lake house I’ll share soon. Meanwhile, I hope you have a great day! Let’s chat soon! xoxo Dell
