The Rest

Handcrafted Sign or Decal Giveaway

August 3, 2012

You may remember that last month I blogged about my front door makeover. I painted the back of the door the same black as the front, spray painted the kick plate brushed nickel, and bought new new hardware to match.

One part of the door that I have no desire to make over, however, is the address decal on the front.


I applied our address numbers to the front of the door a couple of years ago, primarily to dress the door up a bit.

It turns out the numbers have a practical side too, as it makes our address easier to see. Our metal address numbers are sunken in the brick at the side of our garage and they’re hard to make out, especially at night.

The company I ordered the address decal from is Back 40 Life. They are also the newest sponsor at The Family CEO.

There they are in the sidebar:

Along with being a sponsor, the company has offered to give away a $25 gift certificate to a Family CEO reader. Isn’t that cool?

The winner can use the gift certificate on any product in Back 40 Life’s store.

And there’s lot to choose from.

In addition to front door numbers, this welcome decal is very popular.

And how cute is this for a baby’s room?

I’m way past the point of babies, but this monogram caught my eye.

And this framed verse is my absolute favorite.

Finally, remember that Back 40 Life makes signs like this one too.

So what do you think? Would you like to have a Back 40 Life sign or decal in your home?

If the answer’s yes, just leave a comment on this post saying which of these signs/decals in this post is your favorite and you’re entered in the giveaway, just like that.

As always, you can earn extra entries for each of the following, but you must leave a separate comment telling me you did each one, because the comments act as your extra entries.

This giveaway will be open until next Wednesday, August 8, at 10pm CST. At that point I’ll choose a winner from the comments using the Random Number Generator.

Good luck and have a wonderful weekend!
















  1. I am in love with the first picure, would love to have our number scrolled on the door, especially since our house number can be hard to see. Thanks!

  2. I especially like the metal door numbers. Our community fire department recently sent notices for homeowners to make sure their numbers were visible from the street. These are decorative and practical because they are easy to see.

  3. I adore the Swirly Family Name Monogram and I have the perfect spot for it:). Going to peruse the Back 40 Life website right now.

  4. Also just subscribed to your blog by email. Enjoyed your San Francisco posts. I visited there as a child so you brought back some fond memories!

  5. I would love to have the family monogram decal. We jut bought our first home and this would the perfect addition.

  6. I think my favorite is the one you chose ~ they make really great door numbers!

    I also subscribed to your feed via my Google reader and liked you on Facebook. Thanks! :)

  7. Would LOVE the “WELCOME” painted word on our front door! It’s so neat – the red color, daisies in the basket ( so fresh looking) and the “welcome” word!!!
