If you've spent any time browsing Pinterest, (come on now, don't deny the hours of your life it has consumed) you've most likely seen this...
so very lovely isn't it?
And if you are one of the thousands of fans of Ashley Ann, you may have also seen this...
again, so lovely
Well, I was inspired by these to create a little something similar for our home. Most of the time I'm on my own in my hair-brained ideas, but I actually employed Brett for part of this one (I may be skilled at the electric sander and power drill, but I'm still a bit wary of the power saw!) I picked up the wood from Home Depot (in the garden center of all places, apparently its some sort of landscape wood). Perfectly thin and weathered and less than 2 bucks for an 8 foot piece. My skill saw man cut it into 6 pieces and used a scrap to glue them together on the back. I painstakingly cut out all the letters (someday maybe lucky enough to get one of those high fallotin' cutters) and mod-podged them on.
A nice little reminder of
what who the real priorities in my home are.
