Hello! My name is Leah and I write The Front Poarch, my story about the low-cost renovation of our 1950s ranch style home. I love all things mid-century especially if I can get them for free of next to nothing. The hubs and I are Craig's List junkies and are always on the hunt for a good deal. Enjoy this story about my re-purposed baby crib railing!
When I revealed my updated front entry, I mentioned a small ladder with big plans. A few nights ago I took the ladder down, (side note: the ladder is really an old baby crib railing) and prepped it for staining.
I chose Minwax Classic Black in Gloss. I was hesitant to go with the stain and poly again but once I started staining, I was glad I made the choice! This bad boy got 2 coats of stain per side, and I definitely wouldn't have had the patience to go back and do poly as well.
I cut out the numbers using my Silhouette Cameo, glued them to some heavy cardstock and gave everything a coat of Modge Podge so that it would stand up to the elements. So without further adieu, here's the finished product!
. . . and here it is with the water hose tub and new house numbers!
Thanks so much for allowing me to share today!
