Kitchen Update Part 2

So I added some frames and trays from 7 Gypsies.  I need to add some pictures and decorate the trays.  The clear scalloped piece will have a picture and some patterned paper behind the acrylic.  Then we can use it as a dry erase surface.  Ahhhh......much better than a blank wall.  Still needs work, but, hey, it's better!!! 

Oh, by the way, the dorky stuff in the trays is from our Swiss girl.  (We have a foreign exchange student living with us this school year.)  She couldn't stand them being empty. :)

The Kitchen Update Part 1

Here is a look at the "Before" picture.  I have planned to do something with this for over a year.  Today is the day!
 I bought the "Kitchen" wood sign from Hobby Lobby for $5.  I used the laser level to line up "is the" with the bottom of the wooden sign.  (Yeah, I know, the other "The" is crooked....I fixed it!)

 Next, I was ready to hang "Heart of the".  I cut these pieces out on my Cricut out of black vinyl.  Then, use contact paper to pick the pieces up from the Cricut mat.

Now, that looks better!  Imagine the calendar hanging back there.  The calendar is getting an update, too!  But I am waiting for the spray paint to dry!
