Neon signs are the coolest, aren’t they? I’m talking about those old vintage ones that say things like “Lucky’s Cocktails” or “Desert Palms Motel” with a picture of a lady diving into a pool. Love, love, love! So, when I stumbled across this little number, I about screamed in excitement.
Guys! I can make my own “neon” sign!!!! I showed all the directions to my resident “Difficult DIY Project Manager” (aka my husband, Ryan) and he said…it looks a little hard. He said he’d give it a go, though. THEN, I found this tutorial which appears to be much easier. Easier meaning no vinyl roof flashing and electric jigsaw.
It’s foamboard! Granted, I still want the first one, but I will give this one a go. I don’t even think I need to bring the Project Manager into the loop since I think I can handle it myself. And I know I’m probably taking a turn to crazy town, but I’m going to try to do words instead of letters. We’ll see…
As always, I’ll keep you posted!!
UPDATE – OK…I’ll admit that I caved and bought one. I know, I know. But I found someone on Etsy who makes vintage reproductions and I had to go for it. I still want to do the foamboard project, but it’s a little low on my list at this point. Sorry about that. But check out the seller on Etsy. I know that he’s a little backed up at the moment, but hopefully he’ll open up for orders again soon.
