Rustic & Handpainted


Made to order, painted wood signs, perfect for your home and gift giving, using the highest quality craftsmanship, eco-friendly paints and reclaimed wood.

Based in Leicestershire, UK.

Using reclaimed/repurposed wood means each piece is completely unique thanks to the imperfections such as nail holes, dings, knots.  No attempt is made to hide or cover these.  Even with imperfections we can create something beautiful.

Purchasing one of our signs also helps us support Brain Tumour Research, Mind and SMIRA.  Read our story to find out more...



Love our style of wood frames and signs, but cannot find the right words?  Then create your own custom wood sign here.   Select from a number of different paint colours, choose your preferred product and let us know your words.  We will create a design layout for you to approve before any painting begins.  All designs are hand painted.  There is no printing or engraving here.  If you had something in mind which is completely bespoke then please get in touch.  Bespoke is our speciality!

Visit us at The Barn

You can make an appointment to visit us if you would like to discuss a bespoke project, or to view our paint colours, get a feel for our signs or even view the signs we currently have in stock (absolutely no pressure to purchase). It is a working environment rather than a shop, but I am happy to show you our products or discuss ideas with you. Based in Leicestershire.

Working at the Barn

I have taken a leap of faith and finally taken on a workshop, away from my own home.  After 10 years in my comfort zone, I no longer work from home.  What I do have is a rustic old milking barn, solar powered I might add, which we have converted into our little workshop.  It is set on a working farm so the daily commute involving cows, hares and tractors, is quite lovely really!.  To get a glimpse of the barn take a look at our little video here.
