Not your ordinary Thermometer…..
I had always put my outside thermometer on my back patio shelves. The problem was they are round. They don’t stand up properly. The one I had, I had left in the box so I could prop it up. I have never wanted to put up a nail in the siding of my house to hang one up.
So I came up with an idea to glue it to a board that had black and white buffalo print on it.
I wanted it to match my black and white decor I had chosen as my new color scheme.
I hope this gives you inspiration to do something similar if you have a thermometer that you keep on your shelves too. Keep reading for how I made this board that backs it.
I had several sizes of bead board cut for another project I had worked on earlier in the year. So I chose one that my new rather “plain looking” thermometer would fit on. When Hurricane Laura came through our area, my Mom and I worked on painting Buffalo Plaid on several surfaces. This was one of them. I have a blog post describing the process. I will link it here:
I have a Facebook Video explaining the steps you take to paint this process. It is linked below.
It was not easy doing the buffalo print on the bead board. I would recommend a flat piece of craft board such as underlayment.
Below are some pictures I took while I was trying to decide what ribbon to put on as a bow. It was just too plain without some sort of embellishment.
Below is a collage of before and after.
