The old crusty newspaper peeling away from that chippy green paint. Has me dreamin’ of how long that old newspaper sat on that table before someone peeled it off. Her legs were weak, she didn’t stand very tall, but she had good character, so we took her home.
She spent many a night in the Rusted Roots shop waiting for someone to take her home. But, I fear her wobbly legs did her in and kept her from finding a new place to call home. That’s when I got to thinking. How could I upcycle this ‘ol gal to give her a new purpose, a new life without stripping her of her story.
That’s when I decided to strip her of her weakness, those wobbly legs, and turn her into a farmhouse sign…
Her skirt was so hefty, it would make a perfect base for a table top sign or give great depth when hung on a wall. I used our Silhouette to design a simple sign that would fit her personality. ‘Fresh Eggs’ seemed like a good fit.
And look how we managed to save those ‘ol newspaper crusties!! I love it!!
I can’t wait to style her in all her fresh farmhouse glory for Rusted Roots March 18-19 sale!! Something tells me she’ll find a new home that weekend!!
