Please Remove Your Shoes Sign

I recently bought a shoe cabinet (that I still need to put together) which inspired me to make this cute little sign.
I used the same wood as this project. I cut 4-6" pieces and 4-9" pieces with 45 degree angles.
I used Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze for the inside slats. Such a fun and fresh color! After the paint dried, I sanded each piece to remove some of the paint. I did the same with the frame pieces, except I painted them white.
Then, I applied my vinyl.
I glued my pieces together and used some white wood filler on the mitered corners.
I also glued a piece of scrapbook paper to the back to give it a little extra support. Then, I added some white cording.
Isn't that a cute and friendly reminder for your guests to remove their shoes?
Then, I started wondering what it would look like if I switched the fonts.
I'm not sure which one I like the best. What about you?
