Love, Cherish and Adore Pedestal Signs

Today I'm sharing with you a quick little project made from frames and some old stool legs.
These little pedestal signs were created from 3 thrift store frames of roughly the same size. All I did to the frames was paint them with a  little Graphite ASCP, distress them and add dark wax. 
I also used Graphite on some leftover banner material from the shop where I work. 
I then applied a vinyl stencil (I must have had weddings in mind when I made the stencil. lol) and painted the letters with both Coco and Old White.
After that, I got out the staple gun and attached the banner material to the back of the frames.
Pretty simple process.
I pulled some old stool legs out of my stash in the garage and painted those with Graphite as well. 

I had purchased a few pieces from the Habitat Rehab store that we used for the base on these. And Eric cut a piece of wood for each so that they would be more chunky. 
The stool legs already had threaded hardware on the bottom so, after painting and waxing them, I simply drilled holes through the base pieces, added some glue to each and the threads themselves, and screwed them all together. 

Eric attached the frames to the pedestals with screws from the back, attaching one slightly lower than the other two. 
I then added some sisal and a button over the frame that was sitting lower on the base, securing it all with glue. 

I think they make a cute little set. :)


Everyone loves a good party!

  1. Denise, I love these, what a great idea. I can see these being used at craft fair to display prices as well, by painting them with chalkboard paint, where you did the verse. I love how you upcycled 3 different things to make these. Very cute idea.

  29. These are so adorable! I love the font you used for the message and have a question. You said you used vinyl for this step. Ok... call me wacky but I'm confused. A vinyl stencil is what you mean? I'm not familiar with that. I would love to hear from you so when you get a chance, I would be so grateful! Thanks for sharing these with everyone!

  39. These are so pretty! I make something similar with staircase spindles from Lowe's. It's a long a story, but I ended up with 150+ spindles. So I am always looking for new ideas to use them. New reader, I look forward to browsing through your projects!
