Numerical Order~

Okay, so I'm a little obsessed with numbers. I love to use them around my house. You all may remember my numbered dining chairs.





Well, that wasn't enough for me. I decided I had to number my barstools as well. Only this time, instead of handpainting, I went to visit my sister-in-law Alissa who owns a Cricut. Oh yeah! If you haven't used one of these babies, you don't know what you're missing. We took a little sticky-back vinyl and cut out these numbers (and some more that I will use in a future project!) And here they are! I just love them! (I cut out a number 4 too because one of these days we're going to buy a 4th barstool. Mr. Three has decided that he is old enough to sit at the bar with the big kids instead of using a high chair. sigh.)



And speaking of numberd, I also made this fun appliqued number pillow. I'm going to list it in my Etsy early next week. Love it!





We're packing up and heading to Maine this afternoon for a weekend getaway! Can't wait!!


Have a great Thursday~

I just bought those stools last night! The numbers are coming. I was hoping to find a stencil and spray paint them.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

I'm beginning to fall in love with typography. The more you show, the more I'm convinced!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Maine? That sounds like fun. I've never been that far North. :) Have a good time! Love those *new* stools.

Chris said...

I have been eyeing a Cricut for months, and I just couldn't spend the money. But after all the typography I'm so in love with, it just seems like we're meant to be together! I love the stools!

Very cool! I really like the numbers. I've wondered how that cricut works and if it's worth the investment. Thanks for the heads up.

I love the #4 pillow!

Welcome to Maine :) My husband and I have lived here for 5 years now and we love it! Are you coming to the southern part or more up north?

Astrid said...

Cute!

Where did you get those bar stools? I need to get some and those look lovely!

That reminds me...I haven't tried cutting vinyl with my Cricut. Silly of me!

Christy said...

LOVE the numbers! I'm actually getting ready to paint both my kitchen table/chairs AND my barstools black. I'm going to copy your idea and number them all! Thanks for the great inspiration!

I, too, have a thing with numbers and letters for that matter! You have totally inspired with your creative ways of adding them into our decor! Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas! I am now just looking at every inch of my house for places to add #'s! : )

I absolutely love the numbers! They are so cute on the barstools and also on the chairs...I wish I could copy you, if I had some chairs to number!

Megan said...

I love the numbers, too! I had to laugh, though, when I saw the chairs and stools. I thought of the mega families or families with multiples where each child has a number or color to mark their place and posessions.

April said...

I'm popping over from Sandy Toes' blog! Congrats on being her Favorite Blog for this week! You have a wonderful blog and everything she wrote about is true...what a talent you have! Love your numbers idea!

Miss G said...

I bought a Cricut a few months ago and can't live without it. In fact, I came to visit my family this weekend and brought it with me. My mom and I have a few projects planned. I hope you enjoy your weekend in Maine!!

Have fun on your trip!

Erin said...

That's a FABuLOUs! Idea! that's so cool. I'm totally jealous I didn't come up with it.

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

Is that a beadboard island I spy?! Love it!

Kim - said...

love the numbers on the back of the chairs. Hmmm, maybe I should replace my green topiary wreaths with numbers? Did you see the numbered stairs over at Linda's Restyled home? Loved it.

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

I, too, am a big fan of numbers. These projects are delightful! Great job!
