Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to summer! I am back to share a cute before and after project that I whipped up to bring a little sunshine to my front porch area.
I picked up this sign while thrifting. Yes, that is a $.50 sticker. Score! I took advantage of one of our few summer days without rain and got started on my project.
I started by giving the sign a good sanding and followed with a coat of primer.
I followed the coat of primer with two coats of white spray paint.
When I went outside to check on the paint, I caught two large rabbits sitting on my makeshift tarp (hey when you get a sunny day when all you have had is rain for what seems like weeks, you use what you have...plastic tablecloth anyone?) :) Anyhoo...rabbits...they were huge! I caught one with my camera as it was running away.
After the paint dried, I moved inside to paint the trim and the letters. I found this cute little tester in a yellow color at my local Wal-Mart for less than $3. I only needed a little bit, so this was perfect, it even includes the brush! ( Yes, I am easily impressed!) :)
My little thrift sign, before & after:
The bright, cheery welcome sign inspired me to "cute up" (I'm sure that's an official phrase) my front entryway.
I like it. I had a piece of lattice in the garage. Why you ask? Good question. If I knew I'd tell you. :) I thrifted the lady bug rock for $ .50 (that seems to be my magic number!) and I splurged and added that cute little gnome.
I love how $ .50, a vision and some paint can take something bla and make it beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend my friends!
