I've been seeing these "eat signs" popping up a lot lately. I really like the way they look in some of the pictures of kitchens I have seen recently. I decided my kitchen needed some too. The Sunday paper came and low and behold look what was in one of the weekly sales ads.
|Notice the price tag on these beauties. On sale $39.99|
Did ya catch that price? Yes look again. I'll wait. Can you believe they want $39.99 for them and that's the sale price. Well, we all know that is just not going cut it with me. I decided to make my own. Now I'm sure the red beauties are probably wooden. I don't need no stinkin wood ones. Besides red won't match my kitchen. Let's see what we can do.
I found these letters at the craft store. They are the paper mache' kind. They were just under $2.00 each. Not bad. I am happy with them. I decided to make mine black. I already had black spray paint. You guessed it, I painted them black.
I thought they could use something else. So, I lightly sanded the edges and then put a light coat of stain on. You really can't tell from the pictures. They look better, more detail in person. Here they are hanging up on my wall.
I think they came out kind of cute. I am happy with results. So let's compare again. Theirs:
Oh and mine were just about $6.00. Theirs $39.99. Pretty happy about that, too. Have a sweet day!
