Add a little geek-chic to your rustic decor!
The idea started out as a joke and then I thought it would be something my Hubby might get a kick out of. The sign is something I put together from my Hubby’s favorite bits of the Lord of the Rings. So, this is what I ended up with and I’m really happy with it.
