Painting and Pinning for the Letter B

It's the letter B this week.
 
I have several B's.
 
The first is a double B.
 
And, no, that's not a bra size.
 
It's this cute little sign.
 
 
8" x 8"
 
And now I have a quadruple letter B to share.   I didn't make it, but I love, love, love it!

It's a Beautiful Bedspring Bulletin Board!
 

 
I fasten things to it with safety pins!  
 
I had wanted to sell these on my Etsy shop but Etsy won't let me AND at the quantity I buy them they are too pricey.   I'm debating painting this oil-rubbed bronze, but for now I'm liking it just fine in the natural silver color/

6 B's for me this week!

 
As for the little sign...no stencils. No stickers. No vinyl.  Handpainted with my own layout.

Alphabet' in my sidebar.

I love both of these! I like the subtlety of the forceful message in the sign. The bulletin board is an interesting way to re-purpose something. Pretty cool!

A bedspring bulletin board! Who would have thought!
I wonder why Etsy won't let you sell it?

That must be for an awfully small bed?

A great set of B's! It always amazes me how creative people repurpose things that others might overlook...very clever!

Rita said...

That's the craziest, most original bulletin board I've ever seen--LOL! :)

I love the bed springs!

I must say that is the most unusual bulletin board I have ever seen! Unique to be sure!

That's an awful lot of B's! That is a very creative use for the bedsprings.

That's so cool - kind of like you! That's such a neat bulletin board!

Pondside said...

You are just too, too clever. I'd never, in a million years, have thought of doing that with bed springs. I'd like to have your creativity even for half a day!

Simone said...

That's a great idea. I wouldn't have thought of making that into a bulletin board but you have created something good.

The bedspring idea is awesome....I wonder why Etsy won't allow them? Is Etsy bed spring racist?
Be Bold; LOVE IT!
