Worked on a little project this weekend. I saw on Pinterest a sign from Lemonade Makin Mama where she purchased BAKE letters from Ballard Designs and hung them in her kitchen. Well I loved this idea because I love baking and thought this much more appropriate than the EAT letters for our house.
I started with the wooden white letters from Michael's Craft Store.
And an old cookbook that I never use.
A little Mod Podge
I just tore the dessert recipes out of the book with wavy edges and stuck them down on the letters. Once that was done I flipped them over on a mat and cut the edges off up next to the letter.
They finished up nicely and I love the result. I used the Satin finish Mod Podge and this gave a nice finish. I also love the recipe’s, this was an old home extension agency cookbook and my Mom had a few recipes in the book and I have one with her name on one of the letters :)
I wanted to hang these on a skinny wall vertically in my kitchen but since we have the house on the market I thought it best not to add any additional holes to the walls. So, here’s hoping I will find a perfect spot for these in our new home.
On that note…I’m going to take the month of August off from blogging. I hope you all will stay tuned for more projects and ideas come September and this Fall. I have a busy August a head while having to work the next two weekends and with the house being on the market it is hard to start big projects and decorate around here but I have lots of plans for the next home and we are hoping we get an offer soon! I also want to soak up as much of this summer as is left, I just love warm weather and I’m looking forward to long lazy days ahead :)
