Old trophy becomes welcome post

This weekend I made a welcome post out of an old trophy.  The trophy was a retirement gift that was given to my grandmother when she retired.  It had been sitting in the back of a closet for years.  I didn't want to get rid of it because it was once hers, but I really wasn't diggin the "oscar" sitting in my closet.  So I upcycled it! I used the base of it as a new welcome post.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  What do ya think?  Now every time I come home I see that sign and it makes me think of my granny. :) IMG_0600 IMG_0599 front door makeover 004
