House numbers

 

I recently bought these timber stars from a table of Christmas Decorations at  adorne, West end.  They were reduced to $5.00 each, originally $29.95!!! (seriously who would pay that?)

I thought I could paint one to match the front door, add the house number to it and hang it over the pickets on the gate. (I bought two in case someone decided to pinch the first one),  I picked up some cheap plastic numbers from Bunnings  and slapped on some pink paint.

But… Mr F (my husband) said that I was lucky that  he was willing to have a pink front door,  but the pink star hanging over the gate was ‘taking it too far!!!!’ He doesn’t want ‘to live in a gingerbread house!!!’  fair enough.

so we compromised, it now hangs over the outdoor light on the front porch.

I might paint the other star in a different colour, so I can swap them over occasionally.  I’ve got some left over paint from the boys t.v cabinet, the desk and the door on the garden shed .
