:: My Address Sign ::


You may have seen some of the lovely YARD SIGNS I posted yesterday ...showing the inspiration for my own yard sign...

I thought about doing something like this...

I Stenciled Party on a Pallet, turned out cute! Using it at the entrance of our driveway with balloons attached!!

But SERIOUSLY... someone would probably drive by and think it was FREE FOR THE TAKING and accidentally  STEAL MY SIGN  CURB-SHOP MY SIGN.

Because everybody knows a good pallet is hard to come by...! 

So I had to make an address sign that looked INTENTIONAL AND HAD PURPOSE...






YES! Completely recycled and totally free!

I thought it turned out  OH! SO CUTE.

Can you tell what I made it from?  Any guesses? 
I think A Grill off an old truck would be perfect for something like this too...but I didn't have one of those.

If you leave a guess...You CAN'T SAY "TRASH"...cause that's just cheating. ;)

***Hoping the Trash Man doesn't take my sign!  I wired it to the fence.   :)

Great job on using a recycled object .... looks like the backrest from a bench.

I also think it might be the back of an old bench. I hope you are going to tell us.

It's cute!! Love the price tag too! Love the idea of a truck grill, that could be really cute too!

What a great upcycled sign. I'm guessing a deacon's bench back.

Diane said...

Very neat! I don't know what to guess; the curve has me baffled. Maybe the above comments are right? Back to a bench?

Love your sign!! Great idea!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! I do find it easier to sort crafts by Holiday instead of having all holiday thing together. It took my months to get my craft room looking the way it does now and it is still always changing.... I hope that when we both retire and do not have closets filled with medical scrubs and postal uniforms, I can take off the closet doors and put all shelving in the closet for more storage......

Yes, I am a Victorian soul and my dream home would be a Queen Anne with a wrap around front porch. but that will not happen in this life time so instead of dreaming about my dream house, I tried to make our little townhouse into the home of my dreams!!

Hugs,
Deb

That's a cute upcycle! Was it a bench?

The back of a bench?!?! Pat this turned out great and is such a clever use of items on hand. You rock, girl! And an old car or truck grill would look great too. Ann
