Bon Appetit and 100 Followers!

100 followers; WOW! I'm so excited right now, it's not even funny! I'd really like to host a giveaway or something special like that to celebrate, but I'm going to be getting pretty busy soon, and you'll figure out why at the end of this post. I'll still hopefully do one, it will just be a little late. I do have to thank you all again for your amazingly kind comments; they are incredibly overwhelming!

Alright, now unto today's project!

Isn't it funny how inspiration strikes? I've had the same old plank of wood sitting in my bedroom for months and months. I knew I liked the looks of it, but I wasn't sure exactly what it was good for, so I just hung on to it. Finally the other day it hit me! It was the perfect size to make a sign out of and hang above the door. I puzzled for quite awhile over what to put on the sign. I really wanted to do an inspiration quote, but all of them proved to be too long. I finally just decided to do Bon Appetit, since it would be hanging in the kitchen.

Here's the result:

I just white-washed the board, and then made and printed out some stencils on card stock, cut them out, and painted it.

Admittedly, I'm not totally satisfied with how it turned out, and I may end up washing over it again just to give it more character, but for now I think it looks quite good.

Just a little update: My mom and dad are going out of town on friday for two weeks. Me and my sister finally convinced them to let us paint all the trim in the house white like we've been wanting to for months so we've decided to tackle that project while they're gone. It's going to be a rather huge project, I think, but I'm super excited about it!

I can't wait to get my hands on this:

Make sure you check back because I'll undoubtedly be updating you all on our progress throughout the two weeks!

    Wow I loved checking out your work via The Shabby Chic Cottage site! You are an inspiration! A real go getter! Cant wait to see what else you do! What did your parents say? I bet they loved it! And your right it does look like a new place! Dont mind the dents on your baseboards I think it gives it character..There are people that spend alot of time using hammers to get that look...and just think of the stories to how some of them got that way...Kinda shabby chic...Have a great day!
