Transforming the new into old

 I am sometimes disappointed when I order merchandise on-line. Instead of returning it to the manufacturer, I usually get an idea to "transform" it. That is exactly what happened here with these "on beach time" signs. They were not distressed enough for me so I decided to give it the cottage chic, vintage, distressed look with a little paint and sandpaper. Check out the finished piece below. It looks more like something that I would hang in a beach house now!
