Kitchen RedesignAbout a year ago, I started to redesign my kitchen. We live in a small townhouse and completely gutted and remodeled the kitchen we moved in 7 years ago. At that time, dark and warm was in style. Now, not so much. My redesign has been a little slow, I'm still not finished, but it's looking good. I painted chevrons in the back-splash - that was A LOT of work. lol. And free-hand painted a pallet sign for over the sink.
Scrapbook LettersEven with all the other decor, the very white room looked pretty plain. I bought some wooden, unfinished letters at JoAnn's along with some pretty scrapbook paper and got to work. I used my handy dandy x-acto self-healing mat and blade to cut the paper with the blade, tracing around each letter. (I had to go through two rounds of this because hot tea got spilled on the first batch). Sure, I have a Silhouette and that makes cutting paper easy, but it wouldn't be an exact match to the letters, so this really is the easiest way.
IKEA Chalkboard UpgradeWhen yard sale-ing over the summer/fall, I came across this $1 IKEA chalkboard - the frame was in good condition but the chalkboard itself was pretty scratched up. But who can pass up a $1 chalkboard? Not this girl.
Hope to see you soon!
