I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

DIY RUSTED NUMBERS

DIY RUSTED NUMBERS

IMG_2748Oh my gosh, so I can't remember where I saw these DIY rusted metal letters but I just love this project! It was so quick and easy. Just get some paper mache numbers and metallic paint.  (ps I also bought some clear spray paint because I thought I would need it as a top coat but I didn't end up using it-which is why it's in the picture below) IMG_2658

I used a dark grey metallic paint and painted the numbers. I used a paint brush and dabbed on the paint.

I did two coats and before the second coat dried I sprinkled cinnamon on it-yeah cinnamon!

Then just shake off the excess and then I used a paper towel to rub off the excess. And that's it! So quick and I think it really does look like rusted metal. Next I want to try it with a lighter grey metallic paint.
