so this week I was able to get to some of the craft stuff I have been wanting to do. (stupid pinterest) & I wanted to add a little decoration to the kitchen.
So here it is.
My pin from Pinterest
We put about 2 coats on and let them dry. I added another coat later because it just did not have that "hammered" look. To achieve this if you ever use this, you have to spray it on thick, thick as in the paint seems to puddle.
These letters had nail holes on the back side, so they were easy to hang. Since the door frame was so wide, we spread out the letters more.After doing this, I was on a spray paint kick & wanted to go through the house & spray paint everything in sight!
I have been searching on Etsy and other sites for some cute prints for the kitchen. There are a lot of them out there, but they were so pricey. I thought I would try my hand at creating some word prints myself using Picnik.
I thought of all stuff kitchen related & thought of all the things that go on in our kitchen. I had so much fun with this one.
I love this quote, all though there was a debate on whether this was the right quote.
These were super easy to make. In Picnik, select library from the top tabs. Select make a collage and pick the biggest collage there is. You can change the background color or leave it white. In the top right corner, select High under Quality and then select done. Now you can edit it, put in stickers or write with all their fonts! I did have some trouble with the sizing to make it fit on a standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper. You will just have to play around with it and instead of printing through Picnik, save to your computer & print from there. You get much better results.
I even had a helper.
Until he turned into this!
Next I am going to tackle our bedroom dresser, using these pins as inspiration. So excited! I already have my mod podge ready, just looking out for that right fabric.
