I saw a lobster in the Ballard catalog a couple of summers ago. I liked it but not for $70. Found this baby at Ross for $10. Shoulda seen Hubby's face when I brought him home. I didn't like the color...it was red...yuck. Who ever heard of a Red Lobster (coconut shrimp...yum) Up on my shelf it went.
From the time I bought this until now this project has taken 8 months. Am I the only one that does this????.... please,please say no....
First I painted him with this. (Many days pass.)
Next hubby (loves those tin snips), cut left over metal from this headboard
into a rectangle. (Many, many more days pass.)
I made a stencil with the cricut (love it) and painted it with black paint diluted with white. Sanded the words with my sandpapergreen scotch pad (that's what it's for right?). Only one day passes this time...I'm recovering!!!. Then I Kory drilled holes in the sheet metal and I wired the lobster with copper wire to the metal. I hung it with command strips on my backsplash. (all on the same day.)
Silver Stand Beach is in where my Uncle lived when I was a teenager. My sister, brother and I would spend time there in the summer. (California Dreamin') The beach is in Oxnard, California but who wants a sign that says OXNARD!!!! We would always eat at a resturant called the "Lobster Trap" so this sign makes me think of him everytime I look at it!!!! Gotta go....craving some seafood!!!!
P.S. WOW is that crooked or what....my grandsons are here so the lobster will just have to deal....he waited 8 months to get here... whats a few more days.....
