This past weekend five of my girlfriends and I went up to my dad’s lake house for a final summer hurrah. Along with boating, shopping, and eating we also hit a few yard sales. Let me tell you, Milford, Michigan is the place for some killer yard sales. I got this vintage washboard for $.25. It was in great shape except for the actual signage part. I knew I could change that out easy enough. So I pried the top wood piece off, slid out the sign, and cut a new piece of 1/4” luan with my jigsaw. I also wanted it to be functional so I cut a shelf out of some wood I had on hand (the width of the washboard) and attached it with some “L” brackets. Then I taped off the metal washboard and spray primered and painted (Rustoleum Blossom White) the whole thing.I distressed the edges with some coarse grit sandpaper. Then I designed some lettering to cut with my Silhouette machine. If you have a Silhouette machine and would like the file please email me and I will be happy to send it to you.
I have yet to hang it in my laundry room, I will get to that tomorrow. But I think it will go fab with my light blue walls.
A little vintage made new!
