Places we've been and places we dream of going...that's what inspired me to make this whimsical yard sign. Now, everybody who comes into our backyard wants one, too and immediately begins to make a list of their dream destinations!

This listing is for TEN {10} handlettered and handpainted (NOT stenciled) pickets ONLY. This listing does not include the post or screws. You simply purchase a single fence post from your local hardware store and attach each picket with #10 stainless steel screws. Each picket will have a pre-drilled hole in the center. Complete step by step instructions will be included with your order. The height of your sign will depend on the post you purchase and the depth you decide to place it in the ground.

These pickets are naturally weathered and vary in length {16-24 inches}. They will be painted on one side and sealed to protect the painted surface from the weather. Although, weathering only adds to the charm of this yard showstopper, we do remove it from our garden for the winter and store it in our garage.

Upon purchasing, simply message me with your list of locations and mileage. Mileage from your home location can be simply obtained via google maps. PLEASE double check spelling of your destinations. I will paint it exactly as you write it. Thank you.

**NOTE: You may include which direction you would like each picket to point (left or right). If you do not include these directions in your note to seller, then i will randomly paint half of your pickets pointing right and half left.

If you are interested in purchasing less or more than 10 pickets, please convo me and i will set up a custom listing for you with the adjusted price and shipping cost. Thanks!

There is a multi-step process to make these and we have seen a tremendous uptick in orders as folks have opted to vacation in their own backyards during this pandemic. We are honored to make our signs for you. Thank you in advance for your patience!

This is adorable! A few years ago I contemplated doing this myself and now I’m SO glad I didn’t because I could not have done the amazing job! The colors and letters are perfect! The only thing I wish I did was tell what direction I wanted the arrows. That is an option and I didn’t think it mattered but now I wish I did. I will be ordering more signs as we vacation! Love love love!!

These signs are awesome! The quality and craftsmanship is superb and the colors are really vibrant. As well as choosing places that are special to us, we also got signs pointing to where our families live. Our family live overseas so these signs are great for my children to be able to see what direction and how far their grandparents are. It just helps them to feel connected to family. They also add a really nice pop of color to our yard as we attached them to our cabana. I can’t recommend these signs highly enough. They are super value for such a well made product and they’re great fun! (Can only add one photo so just put a close up of two of the ten signs we bought so a sense of the color and quality can be seen).

We love, love, love our directional signs! Lori does such amazing work! After our first order, we needed more. Took a non traditional way and placed them randomly on our back fence. 40 years of marriage and lots of memorable trips❤️

I am so in love with my sign! Lori did an amazing job and even went above and beyond and painting the pickets for our colleges in the respective school colors without even being asked! We've gotten so many compliments and love the way our new sign looks by our new pool! Thank you so much, Lori!
