A sneak peak at the after.....
Shopping: I totally scored a few weeks ago when Hobby Lobby was having a sale on all their unfinished wood. I snapped up the wooded spoon and to my amazement...I found tiny little rolling pins! I didn't know what I was going to do for the rolling pin, and this was just perfect. Next up was the grater. I knew Dollar Tree had red kitchen accessories...I really really hoped they had the grater. They did! They even had 2 different options. Whoohoo. Last up was the frames. I totally love Ikea. I knew they had to have cheap frames...and they didn't disappoint. They even had red and blue ( I stuck with just blue though because there are so many variations of red out there). I got each frame for $1.99 each. Sweet!
The process: Totally simple project.
I painted the spoon and rolling pin...

I then printed off the sayings on to printer paper and put them in the frames. The frames came with a plastic film instead of glass and I just put the paper in front of it. I then used glue dots to attach the spoon, rolling pin, and grater.
Finished product: Super cute!
Gotta have close ups of all of them.
They look adorable up in their new home! I was afraid that they would be hard to see, but they are just fine. Yippee!
I love how the project turned out and for about $10 I have a little more decoration on top of my cabinets.
