Are you curious about what you can expect from a Lily & Sparrow sign? We’d love to share more about our signs with you! First and foremost, it’s important to know that our wood signs are entirely handmade. Yep, that means we hand cut, stain, paint and router everything ourselves. They are a labor of love, for sure — but we LOVE creating these.
Let’s talk about the frames first. This wood is about 3/4″ thick and surrounds the entire sign, as you can see in the photo above. The wood for our frames actually starts out as a ten foot stick and then is cut down to size. Once they are cut, we stain the wood with a walnut stain, which provides a beautiful medium-brown finish. The stain takes differently to each piece of wood, which uniquely highlights the grain of the wood. What’s left is a smooth and beautiful frame!
