When I had my brain wave to create my Family Name sign, one problem I had was how was I going to cut the timber.
I am so incredibly lucky that my husband goes with my crazy 99% of the time. He loves that I will give anything a go, and he encourages it. If you ask Adam, he will tell you that I CAN'T sit still and my mind is going a million miles an hour and I'm always thinking of new projects.
My Awesome Husband and me
The Family Name Sign was no exception. We went on a shopping excursion to Bunnings to get the materials to make ONE sign and I spent an hour choosing the right shade of white (this was before I started using chalk paint) and then almost as long figuring out what stain and sealer I was going to use. We then went for a wander down to the timber section, and lo and behold Jaclyn had another brain wave. I'll make one for Christmas gifts for my sisters!! I did forget to mention this was Christmas Eve.
Adam then gently asked how I planned on cutting the timber.
To which I replied "your drop saw".
Unbeknownst to me, his drop saw was stuffed/knackered/kaput. My heart sank. I started to put all the materials back, the paint that had taken me an hour to choose - literally.
Adam stopped me and said that he'll just buy a new one. 😍 I mean, come on how incredibly awesome is my hubby!!
So armed with all my supplies, we now set off to find a drop saw. We couldn't find one in Bunnings, so off to Mitre 10 he went. And he bought home a brand spanking new Makita Drop/Slide saw.
I was so flipping excited when he bought it home and this is where Signed Jaclyn begins.
Until next time
