5 minute Initial makeover

I decided to give our front porch a little face lift and when I mean little, I mean a little.  Just a sharpie pen and some rub and buff did the trick!

First, I have had the second leg of my Communion Table Hack sitting around for about a year. I just let it languish in a corner. Well, today it got a little Rub N' Buff in gold and added to the front porch.

First I had to dust it off....really well, ahem.

Then I just put a little gold Rub N' Buff on a paper towel and applied it to the "U"

WOW! I'm gonna try this on my eyelids! Just kidding, that would be madness! Although I have always been a sucker for gold eyeshadow...

Then my house numbers got a little love as well. The previous owner had just used a flat paint on the numbers. Very dull. So I got my Sharpie Oil-based pen in gloss black and colored for a while. Then I got a little cray-cray and even outlined the outline! 

I added some punch to an otherwise blah doorbell. 
 I had to remember less is more because coloring with Sharpies is serious fun.
Seriously, give it a try!

Always being renewed,

  1. Everything looks beautiful!!!
    I use sharpies so often I feel they should be giving me a life time supply of them lol
    Love your bell!

  2. Looks fantastic, Kim! I love your front entry. ;)

  3. I love how the letter turned out! And yes, coloring with Sharpies is always fun...I like to use them on my nails (with polish of course. It would never come off otherwise) :)

  4. Ooh I love this so much, Kim! Your little changes had a big impact! Where do you find Rub 'n Buff in the 'burgh? I've struck out at Michael's and the home improvement stores. Hope you're having a great week!
