Decor Inspiration: Subway Signs....

Hi everyone!
Today I am bringing you another one of my current obsessions which I largely blame Pinterest for and that is subway signage!! Now a quick look around the web to see where I could purchase said sign and I was amazed to see they actually cost a fortune and quite frankly I do not have that much to spend at the moment. What I do have is going towards a bag for moi in the summer sales!! Now here is some of the cool inspiration that started my obsession in the first place ....




Aren't they just fab? Now the huge draw I have towards them is the fact you can personalise the wording to include favourite roads, towns etc that may hold fabulous memories for you ! These would be amazing gifts for weddings or anniversaries, I know my sister in law would rave over one of these. I have seen a few tutorials also on some blogs and this one here seems easy enough (well in writing anyhow!!)

Please do let me know if you like these ideas!

Have a lovely day :)

  15. Love these. I think I saw something very similar in Primark of all places for £5 which I was going to pick up for my little boy's bedroom and then forgot to get but I love the post on how to make. Really enjoyed the blog you directed to as it just reminded me to get off my bottom and start making my jewellery again and now inspired to look in to ETSY. Have looked at it before but it's now time to do something - the second son only has a year before he starts school full time and I need a job which lets me work at home! Thanks for kick starting!
