Welcome Sign

My brother...He can be a jerk. I have 4 brothers, but  1 of them is a jerk. I love him, but he's a jerk. Anyway....My husband was given some old used oak flooring. Originally we thought it might be enough to do my sister in law's house - but it turned out to only be about 400 square feet. Some of it pretty rough. So instead of tossing it out, I asked him to keep it & I have been making signs from the flooring strips. Here is the one I made for myself. Now?? You may ask yourself WHY I mentioned my brother? I sent him a text message of my sign. He said it would look great to welcome the caravan of immigrants coming up from South America. Bless their souls. I don't think they'll make it THIS far. But the sign won't go up until it's sealed anyway.

The wood will get darker after it's sealed. This is a huge sign. It's 2 foot by 4 foot & weighs a LOT! I don't know what Prince Charming will use to attach it to the wall on my deck, but it is going to have to be sturdy. I have already been offered $$ for this sign. I don't wanna sell it... But I CAN make another one!
