I've been *slowly* redoing the strange room on the side of our house. I call it the landing...it is a "room" that was added onto the side of the house to allow access to the basement without going outside..four stairs down, landing and door to the outside, and 6 stairs going back the other way to get to the basement. There's a homemade shelf and cabinet. When you have an 864 square foot house, storage is at a premium...I'm sure that's why there's a shelf and cabinet out there.
Anyway...I love all of the "word" art going around. I knew my hubby wouldn't appreciate anything too gushy/mushy...a definite "NO" to "You Are My Sunshine." I thought and thought and I decided on the first few lines of "All Together Now" by the Beatles. I thought that wasn't too gushy. However, when I showed Trevor, he wasn't too impressed because it said "I love you" twice. Oh, well.
It didn't turn out as cute as I had envisioned. I had originally thought I would cut out all of the letters from computer printouts and Modge Podge it. After cutting out one word, I decided that was for the birds! So I waited for scrapbooking letters to go on sale at Hobby Lobby.
After I painted the cabinet door in the new colors, I removed the door from the cabinet and applied the letters. I don't think it is an epic fail...but it is just "Ehhh...okay..." Just like life, not all projects turn out golden; and that is okay.
