Curb find....finally done!

So it has been a little while since I posted last but I have been very busy.  I finally finished the huge cabinet that I found on the curb and it is officially for sale on Craigslist.  I purposely did this one in a more "shabby chic" way.  I have seen this type of technique for sale all over the place so I thought why not...


Address Sign

I have been working hard on my latest curb find....the monster cabinet that I found.  See the previous post "what I am working on now".   I am getting close to the after pictures,  but in the midst of the chaos I did a little side thing.  Created a simple address plate for the front of the house.  

When we moved in there was a OU sign for the Oklahoma Sooners that had been glued to the brick and it had a chunk that had been broken off....It was horrible looking so I removed it which left a nice round glob of glue showing that was stuck to the brick!  There was no removing it! So that is how it stayed for a year....yes a whole year.  I finally got sick enough of looking at it and out of the wood that I had left from the bench that I made I created a new sign.  IMG_0987

I know, I know it's just an address plate but.... seriously after looking at a round glob of glue for a year.....I am thrilled with how this looks. :)  It's's the little things that makes a house a home.
