I don't know about you, but I'm still trying to find my way back to where I left off before Christmas. I had no idea where I was going to begin, but this plain burlap canvas I picked up on sale the day after Christmas seemed like a good starting point.
I was thinking that it just might be a perfect size for the Old Sign Stencil I just received from Donna at Funky Junk Interiors to try out.
How's this for a perfect fit?
I love this Antiques and Collectibles stencil that comes with an extra set of numbers so you can customize the date.
This one is for keeping, so I decided to go with Est. 1990, the year we moved into our home.
I taped off part of the date that I didn't need.
Then replaced the numbers with 9 and 0.
It needed a little something extra, so I glued some jute braiding around the outer edge, and four decorative brass pieces to the corners.
