DIY vintage restaurant sign

My stepmom, Deb, is kind of hard to find gifts for. But she loves to cook, and she likes antique decorations, so when her birthday came around, I started to think: Maybe I could make her a vintage-style “Deb’s Kitchen” sign as a gift. I had done sign work before; how hard could this one be?

Much harder, turns out. As in, I missed that birthday, and nearly missed a second one. But I learned a lot along the way. Follow along in the video above.
