Jumbled Numbers

How do you like my latest roadside rescue project?
Yeah.  It was free.
oh so huge!
It took some TSP (heavy duty cleaner)
and muscle to get the sticky grime off.
I did two coats of Annie Sloan's Olive Chalk paint.
Then the fun began!
Using my Cricut, I cut various sized vinyl number stencils.
I taped the lines on top that can be seen in the original wood.
It made for a quick easy tape job!!!
I painted over my stencils with some flat black paint.

Next I waxed all the sides of it, and a bit around the top edges.
On these doors... you can see one I did and the other unwaxed.
Does it look older?
Here it is, all done!
Thanks for stopping by my blog to see this project!

  1. I really like the creativity you used with this one! The color and waxing are perfect -- but the numbers are icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing!!!


  2. You've done a great job with this piece of furniture :)
    I've been working on my old kitchen cabinets that I've moved to the basement - basically just getting rid of this old style ugly looking veneer :0

  3. Your creativity is the numbers, really nice. Do you apply your dark wax with a brush or rag? (saw the rag in photo)

    Great JOB!

    1. Hi Debbie. Thanks for the nice comment! Yes, I just use a rag.
