The Polka Dot Flea has moved to a larger building this year on the Central Florida Fairgrounds
So......I built a big new Polka Dot Flea sign to go with the big new building
I have more ideas for perking up the front, but this sign was my first project. It will go on the grass outside the entrance
I found these metal letters at Renningers a great antique market about 30 minutes outside Orlando in Mount Dora.
I cut a piece of plywood and then built a frame around it. I got all of the wood from my scrap pile
When I recently redid my kitchen I saved the old faux back
splash...Horder...Horder.... I knew I would use it for something. I was able to glue it on and then used dark wax to age it a little.
I thought long and hard about how to attach the metal letters, since they are hollow in the back, I could not glue them and I would have needed mighty long screws ...So, in the end I attached them with wire
And then did a practice run by setting it up in my back yard to insure no snafus on show day
It measures almost 9 ft long!
That Should get peoples attention......I am thrilled to put a big check mark on this project......DONE!!!
