For a long time, I had been searching for the perfect wooden number 5. I have 5 people in my family so #5 represents each of us and I love things with meaning.I want to say this wooden number was originally 5.99 but I cant remember what the tag said... it was also on sale for 50% off! I couldn't put it in my cart fast enough.
Bless Hobby Lobby's heart for having exactly what I had been looking for!
1. I spray painted the number with Valspar's metallic gold spray paint from Lowe's. Unfortunately I didn't snap any pictures of that step. I was juggling multiple projects at once!
2. After the gold was try, I spray painted the number again with Valspar's white spray paint and it actually was the white primer!
I then took my block sander and started sanding/distressing away. I focused on the edges and lightly went over the entire 5. I wanted an old, worn shabby look with the metallic gold peeking through for character.
I then took some leftover nail head trim and was going to originally use the roll of it from Hancock's Fabrics but I then decided that it would be too much so I opted to use just the nail heads and space them out nicely.
I started nailing at the corner and worked my way around with the desired space in between the studs.
I already had the nail head trim and paint on hand so this project was under $5 for me. Style doesn't have to cost you a pretty penny.
This project really is super easy and anyone can do it! Head to your local Hobby Lobby store to get your favorite number and make your own!
