treasures from trash
Perhaps you remember last summer when i was helping Douglas clean out his mother's house. I continue to find new and exciting (and occasionally terrifying) things in the final boxes, such as these handmade wooden letters. They were cool, but FILTHY. Now Niki, they don't look that dirty, you say. I think you might be exaggerating, you say. How filthy were they really? you say. The difference in the right side of the H and the top bar of the F is just from the first cleaning with water and elbow grease. What the heck is that black gunk on the left side of the H anyway? Check out the chamois i was using BLECH I now have the complete alphabet, except I (which you think would be really easy to make) and I have several numbers. I still want to clean them with wood cleaner and then... i don't know what i'm gonna do but i'm thinking it is going to involve decoupage.
