I have been a little absent from blogging, DIYing, and crafting lately. Life has just been really busy since the new year started. Today I decided to treat myself to a quick craft project before our busy week got started.
I have wanted EAT letters for my kitchen/dining room for a while now, but just couldn’t seem to find exactly what I wanted. Not the right color, size, style, or price. So, I found these letters at Hobby Lobby the other day. They were the right size, and unfinished. The best part is they were only 3.49 each!!! 10.47 total for the letters. Bargain!!!
I could have gone with a quick spray paint finish, but I felt like I needed some pattern/prints in that part of my house. I headed to the scrap booking section. I found this beautiful paper. It looks like old scattered postcards. It was .59 cents a sheet! I bought 4 so I would have an extra sheet just in case. 2.36 total for the paper. I’m in for 12.83 total so far. Not bad at all!!!
Exactly what I had in mind!! I love to decoupage anything, so this was just meant to be.
I broke out my bottle of decoupage and went to work. If you are new to decoupaging, I highly recommend it. For me, it’s a pretty relaxing craft project, and you really can’t mess anything up. I keep sponge paint brushes on hand, so when I get the urge to craft, I have them ready. I like to pour the decoupage on a paper plate to dip my brush into paint, or in this case, decoupage.
