It was super easy…I bought the "B" from Hobby Lobby - it was painted black so I just gave it two coats of ASCP in Old White. I then added the established date and after tracing it onto the letter, filled it in with a Sharpie pen. I then tied a burlap bow around it and stuck a frosty pine branch pick in. Voila!
I can switch the pick out with different ones for different seasons if I wish. Gotta love easy and multi-use! :o)
On another note, when I was painting the hallway, I had Bruce remove the doorbell box as it didn't work and we really didn't need it. Anyway, Bruce got a what I call a dinner bell for Christmas - it was perfect for the farmhouse so he hung it up by the front door. Clang, clang! It rings pretty loud and the house is small so it makes a great substitution for the doorbell. See why I think it's perfect?
So come on by…if you happen to go to the front door instead of through the garage/kitchen door, ring the bell - I'll welcome you and we can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee together.
Hugs and Blessings,
I am currently working through my stash of pending projects…I am trying really hard not to go into a thrift store until I get this pile reduced. I need to get it under control. LOL.
And for those who read about Bruce wanting a desk somewhere and complaining I'd taken over the spare bedroom for guests, you'll be pleased to know we are bringing a small table/desk up to put in the room. I think it will go well with the furniture in there and he will have a space for work, etc. More on that later. I shouldn't have to shift too much around.
