A friend of mine made this sign for me. It is painted on wood. What should I seal it with before I actually hang it outside?

Exterior polyurethene would work Maryln. You could get satin finish or high gloss - whichever you prefer! You might want to put at least 3 coats on it, sanding lightly in between.

GREAT sign Thumbs up

I love the sign, too!

It reminds me of the doormat we saw in a store window (the reason for the reflection) on Cape Cod.

That's awesome, too, Arlene! Hilarious!

I actually saw the sign somewhere online and e-mailed the link to my friend and asked if she could make me one. (If she had said no, I was going to e-mail you next, Becky! Smiling ) The more conventional "No Soliciting" sign I have now does NOT work. I'm hoping this one will work better. Whistling Hilarious!
