BELLE CUISINE DE CAMPAGNE FRANCAIS

These summer days have flown by.  But, this morning I finished the sign for Kimberly who was my 200th FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY winner.  
At the end of June, I posted her "win" here:

"So, the OTHER winner of a hand-painted sign is:
Kimberly of KBUNTON0824
who would like a sign to say:
belle cuisine de campagne français"

First I painted the door in Annie Sloan's "Old White".  For a while I felt that ASCP was over-rated.  I do think that flat paint can suffice with many projects.  But the wording went onto the Annie Sloan paint beautifully and I'm back to really liking it.   
 So I transferred the chosen wording onto the sign using a printout of the saying, covering the back of the words in pencil lead, laying it on the door, going over the words, and painting with a fine brush.
 Kimberly requested red and white which matches her kitchen.
 After sanding the door here and there . . .
 I wiped on some Old English Dark Scratch cover, and Minwax Finishing Wax (also dark).
First to dry and then off to Kimberly!
Congratulations Kimberly! 

The other winner, my good friend Jan, will have her sign hand-delivered in October when we visit her in McKinney!

Hi Nan,
Oh, Kimberley should have write
"française" - with an "e" at the end of the word. Maybe it is possible to correct but it is very beautiful like this (my English is
not very good and only God is perfect !!).
Amitiés,
Anne

I don't speak French myself and had to go on what I was given! When I look up the word, spelled both ways, it still says the meaning is, "French". I hope Kimberly doesn't have any French speaking friends visiting her kitchen who will know the difference!

YOU COULD MAKE THAT IS ON FACEBOOK!
