Outdoor Thermometer Makeover

My office passed out this Outdoor Thermometer a while back. My mind started reeling about possibilities for it. I just finally got around to doing it. I found some scrapbook paper at Michael's and just decoupaged it.

Before:



After:

As you can see, I was impatient and didn't wait for the first coat to dry, so it wrinkled up a bit.
OH WELL!! I think it is still 100% better!?!?




It still looked plain to me, so I added our name and the dated "we" were established!!



Here it is in the garage!!!



One of my co-workers gave me another one, so I will eventually do it. I will be more patient with it, so that it will not wrinkle up.

*****LESSON LEARNED*****
Allow Mod Podge to COMPLETLY DRY between coats =)

Very cute. I get a little impatient with letting paint dry as well. I have to make myself walk away and leave it alone. The lettering adds so much.
