I saw this next project on a new blog that I found chock full of good ideas.
This was one such project!
I saw these at Shanty 2 Chic and immediately knew what I was going to do with them.
They were sooo easy to make! Ignore the ugly light in the middle, that is on my list to redo.
I scrounged in the garage for some wood. I found these leftover scraps and decided to put them to use.
These are 12 x 12 so I cut them in the middle. I then rounded the corners with the sander. I painted them with SW Modest White.
I know you are jealous of my fabulous painting table area thingy. Kitchen tables and veggie cans work great! I did use pumpkin cans to be in the fall mood though.
Anyways, after they were dry, I made a circle out of paper to use for a stencil. You can see it sitting on the table. I used a magic marker to make the dots and the dividing line. I used electrical tape to mark off a line. I like how the marker is faded making them look old.
I also took the sander to them again and distressed the edges and corners. I then went over the whole thing with dark walnut stain to give them a vintagey look. Sawtooth hangers on the back and I was done.
The numbers are our address. I had seen people put their address numbers over their sinks. I am putting ours on the back door, so I didn't want too much repitition.
So, what do you think?!
