I got my project finished and hung up over the weekend. I LOVE it!!
So I've had this little sign hung up over our pantry/closet door for quite awhile now. I intended to find other things to hang around it to fill the area out a little more. I never did get around to it and that little sign looked so lonely and out of place up there by itself.
So I decided that I wanted to try something else up there. I have a small pile of wood that I took from my grandma's house when we were cleaning it out to be sold last summer. My grandpa had a small wood shop that he made lots of little projects in when he was alive so he had a pretty big supply of wood. My brother and I spent a lot of time out in that shop with him. My grandma was our babysitter when we were little so we were at their house everyday. Anyway....I decided I wanted to paint some sort of sign to hang above the door. I took one of the boards, painted it green, then tried to decide what to paint on it. It was about 7 inches tall and about 34 inches or so long. I couldn't come up with anything so I looked around on Etsy for some inspiration. I came across something that I just loved. So I cut up my long board to make smaller pieces, painted them, and ordered some letters on Uppercase Living.
I really, really like it! I fills the space so much better and best of all it only cost about $10 (for the letters). The keys are from a package of chipboard keys that I bought a little over a year ago.
