From Yardsale Junk to My Wall Treasure


I found this at a yard sale a few weeks ago and bought it for 50 cents. At the time I had no idea why - I just wanted it and knew I would find some use for it eventually. It was pretty scarred but had no chips or cracks. It is actually made of plastic and the letters are raised. I know it looks ceramic in the photo. (*I wish it was!) Plus it matched no decor in my house.

I tried to stain it - and that was an epic fail. I decided to just paint the whole thing black - and I love it! I was going to take some white paint and go over the letters but I decided I like it just the way it is.


I know it is hard to read it in this photo - but not in person - just click on the picture to enlarge it and you can see it better. Now it fits right in with my black and red decor!

  4. It really looks much more classy now that you've painted it all black. Good job!
