The drift-wood is drifting away

Before: drift-wood address plaque. It looks like it might be a decent weapon to carry in my purse.

Over the weekend, my sister did an excellent job creating a brand-new, classic-looking address plaque for the house. What started as a piece of “drift-wood” with some numbers attached has been transformed into something completely different.

Supplies.

The beautiful finished product

At first we were considering purchasing new numbers; they really are not all that expensive. But instead, Dad took the existing number and painted them black. Grace bought a wooden plaque from Michael’s and painted it with exterior white paint. Then she attached the old numbers to the new plaque. We will not hang this until the door is finished. The storm door is being installed tomorrow and the molding is in the process of being shipped.
