“YUM” Kitchen Sign

Good morning! Hope you all had a nice weekend. I spent mine holding an open house for one of our listings, then we went out dancing with a bunch of friends to celebrate one of my bestie’s birthdays. Sunday, we took Frank to the dog park, did a little shopping and had a nice family dinner at Clay’s parents. I also finished up our photo collage wall. It’s looking pretty dang cute. Can’t wait to share with you tomorrow!

Okay, so I really liked that ever so popular “EAT” sign that has been popping up on blogs everywhere. I didn’t want to just do the same, so this is my take on it:

When the babe & I were at Joann’s last week picking up our items for making our headboard, I spotted these paper mache letters, only $2.99 each. I bought em & sprayed them with my fav spray paint ever – Rustoleum gold metallic… the thing is, it was really cold when I sprayed the letters and the paint started crackling!!

Anyway whatever, I still like them. I think it adds character haha. It kind of reminds me of the cracked nail polish trend that’s going on right now.

What do you think? Do you think I should sand & re-paint it or just leave them?

Oh btw, I used these awesome little adhesive squares to put the letters up. Got them at Joann’s as well. You can remove the adhesive and it leaves no damage at all.

I will definitely be using these paper mache letters for the baby room also! They are just too cute not to.

$4 Wine cabinet easy update

You all know how I love me some spray paint. This is probably the easiest & cheapest DIY project of all time. This should inspire you to break out your own can of spray paint and do a little re-vamping on your outdated furniture. I actually sprayed my little wine cabinet a couple of months ago.. I was holding off on this post, in hopes of  finding some super adorable new knobs to really transform the piece, but i couldn’t find anything small enough. Oh well it’s still cute!

This wine cabinet is from Pier 1 and was purchased approx. 5 years ago! I remember it being something like $200 ?! I would never pay that now. Jesus Pier One  is so overpriced (compared to what you can find out there nowadays)

I was SO sick of the barf green color – OMG

After two thin coats of Rust-oleum Satin Lagoon, we have a whole new look. I was too lazy to sand or prime, but I think it came out perfect.

I think Rust-oleum satin finish spray paints give just the right amount of shine.

I love that the shabby chic cabinet goes so perfectly with the wine cabinet

I’m really loving the nice burst of color it brings to the dining room

What do you think?
