Trash to Treasure Tuesday

You laid awake all night last night wondering what I did with those chipboard letters, didn’t you?

You didn’t? Oh, okay.

I’m gonna tell you anyway.

So, I had this piece of scrap wood… (I’ve now written 3,349 posts that start with that phrase)

It’s a piece of MDF actually, leftover from our master bedroom shelves. I spray painted it with silver paint, then sanded the edges and roughed up the shiny finish.

Next, I brushed on my new Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze, and wiped it right off. I’m just loving the look of tarnished silver/aged metal this creates. Remember the frame I tried this on first?
Just to warn you, you MIGHT see this finish again this holiday season.

I painted three chipboard letter with “colonial red” craft paint and glued them on the wood. Then I just used some small letter stamps and a black stamp pad to finish the thought.

A few small ornaments and some fake snow in my apothecary jar, and my powder room sports just a touch of Christmas color.

How much? Well…the whole alphabet was $2.99, so that’s about 35 cents for the letters. I already had everything else. A touch of Christmas for UNDER a dollar. Now THAT brings JOY to MY world.

Link up those projects!! Please be sure to link back to REINVENTED in your posts so that we can share the love.

I’m linking up to Kimba’s DIY day.

  1. That’s really cute Kimm!
    The last several times I’ve been to my fav thrift store there has been a box of PB fake snow…now I’m thinking I must go back and get it…it’s probably gone…

  2. What a cute sign! I would join in the party but I don’t think my post technically counts as trash – although I did use some old branches from my yard.

    Great job!
