I am licking everying in my house - on my $0 budget
Since I borrowed my Mom's Cricut, I decided I would monogram things :) . I am hoping and dreaming that one day I can have one of my own. Insert a picture here of me staring off longingly, dreaming of a Cricut or Silhouette :)
I put our initials on picture frames, candles but the best thing I 'licked' was our mailbox. When we moved in, the mailbox was a rusty bass box. I would love a beautiful mailbox but do not want to spend the money on it because here in Canada (or at least where I live) we have large mailboxes on each street where 20 or 30 homes collect their mail from. So our mailbox is only used for junk mail and occasionally the newspaper (the odd time when the delivery person actually comes up our steps and put it in the mailbox rather than throwing it at the house and leaving a big messy pile of paper).
I took the mailbox down, lightly sanded off the flaking rust spots and spray painted it black. If you look closely you can see where the rust spots were, but I really don't care so much. This is a million times better!
Remember April 1st is the $0 Budget link party. Please remember to stop by and share you ideas. Thanks for the support the past 17 days with my challenge.
