I have a couple of old metal stools I have painted, now I am wondering if there are some cute sayings I could add?

Don't know of any sayings but they sure are great finds! Enjoy! Jan

RE: Metal Stools

I love them! Nice paint job.
Choose a phrase from your favorite book or poem. Or something silly from a children's book or poem, depending on what you want. If you'd like a funny vintage "saying" you could choose a song title form the 20's see link below. (Ain't Misbehavin' for example) Did you do the painting on the bottle recycling! Those are awesome too.

Kathy, You gave me a great idea--can't wait to show you! It's funny, my dad was an artist but I can't draw a straight line, even with a ruler. I painted an old cardboard barrel the kids gave me, traced the image onto it and went over the traced image with a sharpie. I am always Goggling for images to trace. I can' remember where I found the image for this idea, but the sign originally said something about the Wee Haggis. I did some editing and inserted the can of soda.
