It’s time for the winter edition of the Pinterest challenge. The goal of the challenge is to do/create something from all of the inspiration you’ve pinned on Pinterest. You can see my entries in the summer and fall challenge here and here.
It’s tiny, but that’s “I love pasta” or “Pasta, I love you” in Italian. I thought that would be a super cute addition to the kitchen. But I wanted to personalize it because 1) Spanish has more significance for me and 2) Why limit it to pasta? I love food, not just pasta!
I grabbed this artwork I’d bought at Marshall’s years ago solely because it was marked down to $1.00 and I knew I could do something with it one day. It was actually hanging on the back of the upper cabinets above the stove for a time. It’s made of wood.
I painted the borders white with the center yellow (yep, it’s that same can of Martha Stewart’s Cornbread paint that I used on the front door and the mirror). I printed out the phrase I wanted to use on a piece of paper then I placed graphite paper behind it to trace the words onto the board.
There were a few smudges but I easily just painted back over them.
I used a small tip to paint the words in white. I’m not sure I totally love the way that part came out and may try another method. I did sand it a little and still need to touch it up, but I hung it anyway. Along with the sentiment, I love the color!
How has Pinterest inspired you? Can’t wait to see!
