Headboard and the House Number

My husband and I made this sign to display our address. One day we drove by our neighbors house and they had this twin bed in the trash. It was missing a leg so they threw it was trash! 

Well I'm sure you know by now I will pick anything useful out of anyone's trash. I stash bits and pieces all the time. My Hubby cut the other leg off and the sign was born! I broke out the milk paint and put 2 coats on, slightly sanded it and painted the address and waxed it. I have been so happy with it. It also give refuge for a family of these tiny chickadees sometimes they will come out and sit on the arm of my porch chairs. The kids save popcorn and throw kernels to them. They are the sweetest, nature at its finest.
