I saw these great graphics that used a text background with black and white images on another blog. I was totally inspired to create my own and knew just the spot that needed a little something. We added these cabinets in our kitchen to create a pantry of sorts. We have a 'breakfast' cabinet, a snack/baking/dinner items cabinet, and a canned goods/cookbook cabinet. For the time being, we're keeping the paneling and in the hopefully not too distant future, we'll add a countertop on this wall. So the little space below the cabinets just cried out for some attention and dressing up.
I really liked the text backgrounds in the Winterberry Cottage graphics but being a musician (and having a damaged hymnal in my craft stash that I felt okay with dismantling) I decided to use some favorite hymns instead.
I tried to match the hymn with the word and came up with "I Am Thine, O Lord" for 'Fly,' "What If It Were Today?" for 'Soar,' "Under His Wings" for 'Rest,' and "I'll Sing the Wondrous Story" for 'Sing.'
The last step was to glue it all together and pop them into these little frames we used in our family room in the last house but were in my stash to be repurposed since we moved.
Well, the last 'last' step was to get the hubs to fix the phone cord that hung down like this for the first 5 months we've been in this house. Down the road we might add an outlet for the phone in another location so the cord won't have to run down the wall but for now we went from this....
...to this. Definitely less obnoxious!
And now I can cross one more project off the 'to-do list'!
Linking up to these fun parties! Come check 'em out!!
