Lettering and signs for antique garage decor..

I saw this pic on the "auction site" and really liked the lettering style. Thought I'd put it up for comments

I think you will get more response in the lounge.

Definitely a cool picture. I see old barns like this around the area and plan on the day when I get my coupe done, I'll want to do the same background for pictures.

Paint, Brush, and a steady hand. Use some tape in random areas just as the paint is about dry and "peel" it back for a cool weathered look.

Barn lettering

I don't want to break the rules here but I am really good at this kind of stuff.
Don't know where you are........but if nothing else I could try and talk you thru it.

I wouldn't be overly shocked to find out that any good sign shop could make you up some vinyl signs using almost any imaginable font (type-face)

Even Beautiful, Sunny, Downtown Olds, Alberta (pop 8,000) has a sign shop...
