Love that barn too. How old is it?
I have 100+ year old barnbds on one wall of my mancave, so I won't be covering that up.
I'm hanging mine inside because my signs don't look good on vinyl siding.lol laugh

Hey guys,
lets see how you display your big (5'x6',2'x12',5'x5')signs.
I have a few and was wondering how to display them.
Wall or ceiling? Do I light them or not?
What did you do?
Thanx,
mike

This is the Only Big sign I have, I really like them but the Fact that they take up so much room keeps me from buying more of them. Now I just buy Pump Plate Signs because they are 12" X 12", 12" X 18" so I can buy alot more stuff. grin

I have see were people put Florecent Light fixtures on the wall behind the plastic signs so they can be lighted, personally with that type of sign that is what I would do. It would look impressive with all those big signs all lit up.

When I lived in Wisconsin this is how I displayed my big signs. They're decorated for Christmas in this shot.

GREAT SIGNS guys,
I love the neons, but I guess I'll have to stay with the florecent tubes cause that would be the only thing payed for with my signs.
You guys have great ideas! Christmas lights look very good.
Thanx for your help,
HAGD
