Chicken Make Over

I bought this wooden chicken and sign at an antique store for $15.  As you can see it has definitely seen better days. This is my new project, and it’s certainly going to be a challenge.  The wood is cracked in about a million places. After a little a lot of wood fill, sandpaper, and paint, I’d still like this vintage piece to look old. Hmmm… my wheels are spinning out of control! Did I mention my artistic talent with paint is downright scary? And that I’ve never used wood fill before… like I said, this is going to be a challenge.

I will put this old retired hen back to work, once again she’ll proudly display her egg sign on my front porch.  Unless I totally mess it up, lol.

    Very unique! And antique. I like it!

  2. As long as you make her watertight, don’t think you need to overdo the restoration as she is gorgeous as she is. What a great find!

    What an excellent find! She’s beautiful, and I don’t think you could botch her up. I think your idea to fill, sandpaper, and paint is all she needs! I hope you’ll post “after” photos!
