I have a simple project today that happened quite by accident. Do you remember when I was making the Lego Storage Table? I used some crib spindles to make the nubs/knobs for the drawers.
In order to cut those nubs/knobs, I used the existing lines in the spindles, which created not only the nubs/knobs, but the thinner separating pieces as well.
I painted a couple of them, and I stained one using these great wipes! If you haven’t tried these new products from Minwax, you should check them out. I love the Express Clear products. SO easy to use and clean up. To stain that one little disc, I just opened the tab on the cloths and pressed the disc down on the cloth. I didn’t even take a cloth out of the package. Easy Peasy!
Here are three different versions of the tags. The white and wood toned ones have wire jump rings I fashioned out of wire. The gray one has a jump ring made from a single ply of the hardware string. I like the way they hang using the jump rings as opposed to running the string through the hole.
I cut out several styles of the No. 2 with my Silhouette Portrait. I used the number 2 as a trial, because it’s such a prettier number than 1. Should I be calling it a numeral instead of a number? I use painter’s tape to transfer small vinyl pieces.
These are the fonts I used–Excellentia in excelsis (white) AR JULIAN (gray) Gungsuh (brown)
There really are a LOT of things I could do with these. I guess they could be ornaments, chalkboards, or table numbers at a wedding…. lots of possibilities.
Do you have a favorite font? How would you use them?
Minwax generously shared their products with me, but all thoughts, ideas, projects are my own. I only recommend products I love.
