Family pooch memorial sign

I was asked to make a memorial sign for a family who lost their family dog to a tragedy; it involves a groomer and a table and being leashed to that table and not being paid attention to. So sad.

This sign was made with a 16” x 16” piece of plywood. I added banding to the edges then painted it in three coats of Behr linen white (which is my fave new white).



Sorry for the crappy photos, I finished it last night and couldn’t get a good picture, then I rushed to take a picture of it before I left for work this morning.


The picture frame was attached with Velcro so that the photo can be changed if the recipient wants to. The edges were rubbed with black distressing ink and that’s that.

These signs are easy to make and the velcroed (is that a word?) frame makes it easy to change!

Have a wonderful day.


  1. aww, poor dog :( but I really like the frame and know they will appreciate it.

  2. I didn't even want to read your post when I saw the title. How heart breaking. Nice memorial sign though.

  3. That's so sad :( I like your memorial sign.

  4. That makes my dog-lovin' heart so sad. I'm sure your memorial will be something they'll treasure. (And very clever to use Velcro to attach the frame so the picture can be changed!)
