New Paint and Address Sign

3 years ago I bought the paint to repaint the shutters, front door and garage trim.
I finally did it! WOO HOO!

It wasn't a lot to paint, it wasn't hard to paint, it was just finding the time. Between work, Dr. appointments, and the house...let's just say I need more hours in the day.

I'm just glad I accomplished it this year. Something good had to come from 2020!

I'm glad I still like the color. It had been so long I'd forgotten which I chose! LOL

Of course, along with new paint comes new house numbers!
These were always in the back of my mind. I wanted something unique. Something that meant something, yes here I go with sentimentality again.

I finally decided to use one of my Dad's old hand saws.

Gathered my supplies ~ White Rustoleum, Frog Tape, some carboard                 (because it was handy) and JB Weld.

Taped up the blade so paint wouldn't get on it with the Frog Tape and cardboard. Painted the handle white.

When the paint was dry, I distressed the handle a bit around the area where it would normally be grabbed.  Next was to add the numbers.

(looking toward the Heavens "yes Dad, I'm using JB Weld")
y'all know how he feels about his JB Weld by now. Me too ;)

Mixed it up

Added the numbers
and a Dragonfly my daughter gave me last Christmas.
Love it, the Dragonfly coordinates with the house paint!

Attached it with tube straps
so it's nice and secure.
