I've seen plenty of "eat" kitchen decor on Etsy that I love and could simply purchase-but what fun is that, right? I also get bored of things more quickly than most, so any time I can DIY and save some $, I'm all for it. So, I set out to Joannes to get my craft on & purchased the following [don't forget to use your Joanne's mobile app (nerd alert) I saved 50% on the frame, and 25% on my total purchase!]:
- white cardstock for the actual "art piece" (I got three pieces just in case my penmanship wasn't as perfect as I'd like to think)
- plain wooden frame
- paint (I purchased Martha's "pool" and "wet cement" colors, and was very happy with the way they came out)
- paint brushes
To complete this project, I painted the wooden frame with the Wet Cement paint color, then I just drew out the "eat" with a pencil on the cardstock, painted over it with the Pool color and voila:
In the "after" photo, you also see some new handy dandy dish towels I snagged during my last trip to Target for $4.99!
There you have it, my speedy & simple kitchen craftery!
