Day 4 !!
So I was wondering around the antique mall looking for something. I just didn't know what that something was! You know, I was waiting for it to catch my eye. Well I found this ugly box for $2. Not bad. I could probably work with that.
I immediately thought that it needed some yard stick love. Of course, those cost far more than the box itself!
So I took my sorry box home. Not an antique, mind you. Just a lonely, junky box. I added a couple coats of white paint to cover the ugly particle, miss-matched wood. Then I cut up my antique yard sticks. Are they antique just because we don't use them anymore? I used a brad nailer to attach them so that there weren't a bunch of screws distracting from the number goodness.
I decided after the rulers were added that it still needed a little something. So I added a stencil to the middle of the tray. I'm not sure if I am a slow learner, but I had no idea there was such a thing as adhesive for the backs of stencils so the paint doesn't bleed through. I was jumping up and down when I discovered this little secret. Why had no one told me?
So now it's done and beautiful and sitting on my front porch on my new train table. It's a nice little addition and a perfect place to store some magazines or do-dads or pinecones, or whatever I may find.
Can' wait to see you tomorrow to show off my pallet sign!
