My Family Believes - Kitchen Wall Decor

I've seen so many cool "Family Rules" signs around this past year.  You know you have too.  But I couldn't find one to say just the perfect things --- so I made my own version.

Project #1:  I found this old divided wooden box at a garage sale for $1.  I wish I would have taken a photo of it before we (with my husband's help) ripped the glass out and spray painted it.  There were so many old, ugly items glued on it and we did our best to remove them.  There was some glue and a bead that I couldn't pry off without risking breaking the whole thing.  So I just painted over it.  I knew that when I covered the sections with paper, I could hide the imperfections.

This paper is part of Basic Grey's Origins line (an oldie but a goodie).  And there were chipboard elements to match.

You like how I used this bird to cover up that glued bead?

Project #2:  I found this {previously} silver platter at that same garage sale (score!).  I spray painted it to match my yellow and brown kitchen and added some paper embellishments.  I was a bit baffled when it came time to hang the plate.  But those amazing Scotch mounting tapes worked great.  

Shortly after moving into our new house a year ago, I searched for hours to find the perfect fabric for my new kitchen theme - yellow and brown.  Everything that has yellow in it these days is mixed with Gray.  I love that combo but it just wasn't going to mesh well with my furniture and other decor in my adjacent living room.

Then finally - I found it!  This floral print is part of the Origins Collection that Basic Grey put out a few years ago.  I was especially excited that I would be able to find matching scrapbook paper to complete my projects.  Thanks to embellish IT! for still carrying some of this old collection.  I knew I could count on you!

Project #3:  This was my final kitchen project - covering up these glass doors.  I love the look of glass doors but cabinet space in this house was at a premium and I couldn't use it all for the "pretty" stuff.  If you didn't already know, you can buy tiny little rods that attach to cabinet doors.  This was the perfect solution.

Hope you enjoyed my kitchen crafting projects.  Tell me about yours...
