Repurposed trophy into address plaque

Hey, friends, I am here with another repurpose trophy project.  That's right!  This farmhouse style address plaque was made out of an old trophy that I purchased at a yard sale.



Here is the before picture along with other trophy parts that I repurposed.



First I sanded the wood, dusted all the particles off and wiped clean.  Then I painted the wood using this recipe for chalk paint.  
                                                           
                                                           CHALK PAINT RECIPE

ONE CUP LATEX PAINT 
ADD 1/4 CUP BAKING SODA
MIX WELL
USE 2 COATS TO COVER


After the paint was dry (it dries very fast) I sanded again.

I purchased two wooden farmhouse style numbers from Michaels.  Right now Michaels is having a sale 40% Off Any One Regular Price Item  Click on the link for savings.  The grass cord I purchased on Amazon  
   


I hung my plaque using the grass cord attached to the back with picture hangers.



The stars were brightened up with gold metallic craft paint



I distressed and painted the wooden numbers.  I used the color Refreshing - Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint.  The holes were already in place,  I simply added two cup hooks and hung an antique skeleton key from one.

  1. What a fun way to repurpose trophy parts. Your number sign turned out really cute! I've never heard of the grass cord, I'll have to look for some of that.
