Finally, I can show you the entryway into our home. It is really small but I think it looks adorable. Notice the home sign that I showed you in an earlier post. Also, you can see one of the milk jugs that I repainted. On the lower shelf of the hall table you can see the three canisters. They came from Goodwill. Love it! The sea glass inside the canisters…. free… except for the hard work rowing the kayaks out to our favorite place to get sea glass! I have to say it is one of my favorite things to do with the boys! I am always excited about what hidden treasures we might find! Next up I think I will show you the kitchen!
This is a piece of wood that washed up at high tide. I love the sun bleached grey colors. I think it is part of a bushel basket.
I went to Michaels and found the letters and thought they would be perfect. I spray painted them Gloss Classic Gray from Krylon which I also found at Michaels. I think this will look perfect hanging in the foyer next to my mirror. I will post more photos once all the painting and drywall repair work is done and I have had a chance to place everything back into each room.
Here is the the home sign in my foyer at the Island Home.
So for less than six dollars, I have a unique one of a kind sign for my home!
We are linking up to:
My Husband had a couple of milk cans in the garage that used to be his father’s. I decided to reuse them at the Island home but first they needed a revamp. I had to sand them down with my sanding block. Then I used Rust-Oleum primer and painter’s touch in semi-gloss white. On the first milk can, I added black letters from Michaels. On the second milk can I used Krylon classic gray for the stripe. I might add a few more stripes but for the moment I am happy with what I have. I like the gray stripe because it matches the gray lettering in my home sign. I think I will place all of my reused items in the foyer of the house. I will add more before and after pictures once I have everything back in the house and I can show you the complete transformation which should be really soon!
Well, that lasted about a day before I had to make changes. I added the black stripe which I think ties it into the black lettering on the other milk can. I think I am finished…for now!
