Welcome To Kev's Cove

This is one of my husband's and my favorite places in the world!
It's our very own getaway, right in the back yard. There's no official name for it, but I like to call it Kev's Cove.

 For Father's Day this year I made my husband this sign... 
Remember the stack of wood I bought at an estate sale a couple of months ago? 
I hand painted, Welcome To Kev's Cove, on one of the boards.
A friend had given me this wooden fish...
I painted it with the color, Burlap, from The Dixie Belle Paint Company...

After I added dark glaze to the fish I screwed it onto the board. 
To attach it to the dock, we added a board across the 2 first posts on the dock...
Then the sign was attached to the board with L brackets...

Grab a fishing pole and a bottle of wine,
 and I'll meet you at Kev's Cove!
