number please

A couple of months ago, I bought this cool cubby thing at Kane Co. Flea Market from Whimsy/Room 363.

I put it in the powder room because it perfectly filled a space on the long countertop.

And took up space on the lovely white laminate countertop that is on the long list of things to replace.

I like to fill the cubbies with little vintage trinkets that catch my eye.

But I kept wishing that the cubbies were numbered. With those cool vintage-chippy-enameled numbers.

The other day I was in Hobby Lobby and look what I spied! Not vintage, but the exact look I wanted.

I came home and nailed them on. 15 dollars and 15 minutes later, ta da!

Sometimes even quick, cheap changes can make a big impact.

Don’t forget tomorrow at noon is the deadline for the Pottery Barn gift card giveaway!!!

Happy Tuesday, peeps!

Partying here:

  2. Perfecto!!! I don’t even mind the white laminate with the lovely cubby on it. The cubby attracts all the attention, not the laminate. Just serves as a nice clean backdrop.

    Gosh! I just love that look. I’ve got to be more like you and “just DO it”. I have too many projects waiting for “the perfect thing”…I need to just finish some stuff with “perfectly fine”.

  6. Thank you so much for showing us your faux enamel numbers! I have some baskets that I want to put some on. I sure hope they have them at my Hobby Lobby!
    I just went to Kane on Sunday. It’s the first time I’ve been to a full size flea market. Wow! It was a little overwhelming for me!

    That piece looks perfect with the numbers!

    I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday looking for the numbers. I couldn’t find them anywhere and the ladies there weren’t sure what I was talking about. As soon as I pulled your blog up on my phone and showed them the picture, they found them in about 10 seconds. And I got the last package. Thanks!!

    Have a great day.

  10. Love how those numbers spiced up that cubby. Thank you so much for sharing where to find them. No Hobby Lobby near me but was so happy to be able to order them online. My mind is realing with ideas of how to use them.Found you thru David at Cheltenham Road.
