I’ve made a few changes to the dining room this week, and one of them was to move my BAKE letters, here is where they used to be, and like so many things I get tired of their location over time and need a new look.
I’ve had them out of the kitchen for a while now and stashed in a closet but this week I had the urge to paint them and get them rehung. I discovered this pretty turquoise chalkboard paint by Martha Stewart at Michaels and with my 40% off coupon decided to give it a try. The letters were previously Martha Stewart cornbread yellow, so I just gave them a quick one coat of the turquoise letting some of the yellow peak through.
I must have been in a mood to paint this week because I also repainted the storage bin that’s in the dining room, it was a retro green that I really liked but it matched nothing in my home so I solved that with Cornbread Yellow by Martha Stewart. I also added a new printable to the top of the unit. You can print off a copy for yourself by Clicking Here to Download “Everything’s Better In A Mason Jar”.
You’d never know it by these photos but it’s 35 below outside right now with blowing and drifting snow, but if you’re inside our home it’s starting to look like spring.
I wish someone would tell mother nature it’s time to show us a glimpse of warmer temps. If this keeps up my flowering trees will bloom late again this year, and my fruit trees will have no fruit (that happened last year because of the extreme cold).
I think I’m liking the new color and location of the BAKE sign, what do you think?
The next thing on my list is to remove everything from the cabinet and reorganize it. I like to keep things like lunch thermoses, vases, plastic silverware, and disposable bowls in it, but it’s in need of a weeding out.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and come back next week for more from the cabin.
