Old Porch Gets Bold New Address Sign

At her blog, Balancing Home, Megan shares, “The very first thing I said when we put an offer in on our house was, that porch needs a makeover.”  One reason the porch needed a makeover was the absence of visible address numbers.


Using a piece of wood she already had, Megan painted her house numbers in a bright red, then attached the board to the brick wall of her porch.  What an impact those bold numbers make!  Megan said even the Jimmy Johns delivery guy was impressed!


Find out how Megan painted the numbers on her sign, along with the rest of the details on her beautiful porch makeover, at Balancing Home.

“Love Is All You Need” Wood Sign

While perusing her local Re-Store, Jeanie from Create and Babble stumbled upon this “shabby, cracked, chippy” piece of scrap wood and absolutely loved it! Plus, at forty cents, the price wasn’t too shabby either!

Jeanie knew she wanted to turn the board into a subway sign of sorts and was inspired to add the saying “Love Is All You Need.” She painted it on with a vinyl stencil cut from her Cameo and then sanded down the lettering to make it look as old as her board. So simple yet so much character!

Old Fence Wall Art

As part of my Operation Restoration: Home Edition at Infarrantly Creative, I turned fence boards into a large piece of wall décor for a friend’s home. I happened to score the fencing for free off Craigslist earlier this year.

I cut the pickets off the top and then used a reverse stencil technique for the saying. The grayed wood tones peeking through are perfect for my friend’s more rustic tastes, and all it cost me was a can of spray paint!

Fence Post Laundry Signs

Carolyn from My Simple Messterpiece recently did a makeover in her laundry room and decided to make her own artwork for the space.She’d seen tons of cute rustic signs on Pinterest, which inspired her to collect some curb alert cedar fence posts from Craigslist.

Carolyn turned the posts into these rustic “Wash and Dry” wooden signs. Carolyn says, “These little gems sit proudly on top of my new laundry room cabinet and I just love them! They’re my favorite project to date. Best of all, the cost of the project was virtually nothing!”
