I guess it's no surprise that I love the look of numbered furniture. I've done several different looks in the past year. Here are a few of my favorites! I started with this simple black stool and decided to number it!
This plain white stool was just screaming for attention. Number 2 seemed to be the perfect fit! I printed out the number from my printer, used carbon paper to trace it, then filled in with black acrylic craft paint. Super simple!
Next up was this tall industrial stool. Since I'd already done #1 and #2, it only made sense that this one should be No. 3!
My husband found this cute little table in the alley. It was covered in tacky vinyl. But the legs were good so I decided to take a look. Once I pulled out all the staples holding the vinyl on, I found this great piece of plywood. Now this has potential!
Ok, so I went a little number crazy. (sorry for the crumby picture). A friend of mine bought it for her children's table for Christmas!
This is without a doubt my favorite, though! I found this ugly chest on Craig's List. Wish I had taken "before" pictures, but trust me! It was ugly. Big 1970's brass hardware and someone had glued square parquet flooring on the top. But I knew the moment I saw it that I wanted to number the drawers!
New library hardware made it MUCH better! But what to do about the top? Amazingly, the parquet wood popped right off. After sanding the residual glue smooth, I snatched up a bundle of old wooden yardsticks from ebay and they were PERFECT for the top!
Ahhh... number love!!
Needless to say, none of these lasted long in the shop. All the numbers are gone. Hmmm.... gotta find a new number project!
