Took my fence piece and cleaned it up.
Then I watered down some cream acrylic paint and white washed the whole thing.
Next, I made a compass with a nail and a piece of string. I used a small paint brush instead of a pencil.
I then went back over it with a thicker paint brush.
My awesome neighbor let be borrow her cricut and I cut out an I,V,and X and used them as stencils. I used watered down black paint.
Here she is with all her numbers...
Then I sanded her down. All around the edges, each number and the circle to tone down the black.
Now she needed a little rusting. I combined red, yellow and brown paint with a little water and rubbed it over all the holes.
And here she is in all of her fabulousness!
