Welcome GOG

Calamity_JJune 1, 2012

I was at my RR mailbox the other day and someone had left this awesome window there!!! Talk about one man's junk is another man's treasure!!!! Whoohoo! Love the green glass in it! It just screamed: "Make me into a Welcome sign!!" I am going to varathane the frame, instead of paint it, cuz I live right across from the mailboxes, and I want to hang this sign for everyone to see it transformed!!! I guessing the person who left it there, will recognize it ;-)

Well, it's done...Hubby is actually claiming it, he hasn't done that before?! I intended it to go for sale at a friends art store...I tried staining the wood...it didn't really do much to it. I cut those letters out just freehand!

Hubby wants to hang this with a burl w/house #s...just doesn't go! BUT, this may get me going on a new house sign....I have been inspired by the one Klinger did....Hope she will see this and post a pic of hers....hint hint

I'm glad you are going to keep it. It turned out so neat!! I love the colors too.

Sort of a vertical "welcome mat".

LOL, nothing like a man's poor decorating sense to inspire a new project! (Or is he just that good at getting you to make new stuff? LOL) Can't wait to see that one too!
