Brothermade: Trash to Treasure Sign

My parents are building a new house in Rhode Island.  The end result will be spectacular.  The building phase is equally impressive because my parents involve the boys in every step of the adventure.  Our latest trash to treasure creation (our new term is “brothermade” though it is a bit “mother-brothermade”) makes a great gift for siblings, grandparents, teachers and friends.

The boys have collected and brought home a lot of construction debris from our last few site visits – tire rubber, caution tape, dynamite wiring from demolition, nails, foundation stakes and more.  I am quite a junk collector but this kind of sharp and dirty trash had to be put to immediate use.  We covered a wooden board with chalkboard paint and the boys help me spell out our preferred name for the new house.  Somehow I think this name will stick.
