This week I’ve teamed up with Proctor & Gamble and The Home Depot to bring you a new project and giveaway opportunity. At the first sign of 50 degree weather this year I wasted no time and headed outside to get a jump start on quite a few home projects that have been on my mind all winter. The first was my garage door makeover where I painted trim and glued it up, then I cut some more trim and painted it up to make a frame for my magnetic board, and today I’m showing off my new house numbers project.
Modern, my house is not but if I had my druthers it would be. To fix that I gave it a little hit of modern with my new house numbers.
To tackle this project I picked up some (free) paint stir sticks at Home Depot and cut them down to size. Next I stained them and glued them on to a board that I spray painted (to blend in with the white pillar it would lean against). Then I added my house numbers that I found from Design Within Reach and there you have it!
To see more check out this video I did on Studio 5.
Thumbs up? So what does this and all the projects I just mentioned have in common? Sweat, work, mess and paint. The Home Depot and P&G want you to get you ready for your spring painting projects. They’re giving away a Swiffer Sweeper, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Original and a $25. gift card to The Home Depot. Now I’ll be honest, this ain’t no ipad like I’ve given away in the past but seriously, I use these items daily and several times a day at that. I would be lost (or have a much dirtier home) without them. Plus they are in my arsenal when I do any painting project. The Swiffer Sweeper is SO much better than a broom because it traps those tiny pieces of dirt that usually get left behind making my floors much cleaner. And the Magic Eraser…the are heaven sent! I used to use really heavy, toxic cleaners on my shower surfaces, oven, stove, etc. but the Magic Eraser has replaced all of those. The other thing that is so blessed about this Eraser sponge…remember when I posted about the red stool that has left marks all over my counters from being rammed so many times? I tried soap, cleaning chemicals, finger nail polish remover and nothing worked, Then I tried the Magic Eraser and it took it right off! Even on marks 6 months old, no problem! “Magic” is an understatement. It’s also great for any little paint splatters.
