K.M. Longworth Co.

A few months ago I was asked about making a sign for a new clothing and furniture boutique that will be opening soon in Little Falls. Of course I was excited about this project. The sign needed to be about 8 feet long. A challenge to say the least as I prefer to use recycled materials whenever possible. About the time I took on the project I found a wood valance on craigslist. It was 10 foot long. As soon as I saw this I knew it would work. Here is how it looked when I brought it home. At first I had thought of cutting off the scalloped edge, but we decided to keep it. I am so glad we did. It was cut it down by 2 feet to make it work.
I love how it has turned out

Here is the store front pre-sign.

Chris prepping it to hang

All hung. It looks as if it was meant to be.

I am very excited for the store to open. I will be sure to share pictures!


  1. That turned out awesome! Don't ya love it when a custom design comes together just like you envisioned it? I just did a painting of a local historic home, but can't post it. Just my luck, the lucky lady that is getting it for Christmas will check out my blog and figure out that her husband commisssioned it. LOL Tami

  2. That signed looks so great on their store front! That valance looks like a longer version of one I found and hung in my kitchen!


  3. That looks fantastic, Christina! I love it and it does look exactly like it was meant for this storefront. Great job!

  4. The sign looks like it has always been there. I love to visit shops like these in quaint villages. Great job.

  5. This sign could not have turned out more perfect! It looks terrific!

  6. It looks great and you are right, the scallop just sets it off. You should be very proud!

  7. Once again you have outdone yourself. The store sign is amazing and I love the scallop on it. Great job.
