Cottage Home Sign Project

"W hat is this?", you might be asking yourself. Well, it is an old closet shelf and the latest project I've tackled. About a year ago we did some renovations to our little cottage and amongst all the trash was this little piece of treasure, which I salvaged. "Why?", because there is hidden beauty here. As a self proclaimed "Road-Side Acquisition Specialist", I tend to see the beauty and possibilities in, well... trash. Finally after a year of toying with different ideas, it came to me. A SIGN! No, literally, to make a vintage style sign.

So here it is. I really did like how this project turned out. Honestly, all I did was paint Cottage Home on it and destressed it some more with an antiquing glaze. It was that easy... I hope you all agree this is a true trash to treasure.

I DO agree! That turned out great. Don't you love the feeling of turing someone's throw aways into a treasure? I know I do. Thanks for sharing!
