What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday

January 1, 2014

Wow!  Welcome to 2014… It’s so hard to believe how fast the past year went, and even crazier to think how my 2014 is starting off!  The big news is… We’re moving to a new house!  And with a new house, comes a new kitchen!!!  I am SO THRILLED to be moving into my new kitchen, and have been busy all holiday break thinking about how to decorate.  Thanks to Pinterest and some clever bloggers, my What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday is some delightful art for my new digs!

First things first, this is my new kitchen:

Their stuff- not mine, yet!


We’re planning on painting things a light grey, so with greys and whites as my color palette, I set off on my quest.  I wanted cozy, classic, and a little bit quirky.  I knew I’d need to make a new “meal planner” board because the one I made previously just wouldn’t match.  Drat. 

So I set off to scanning pinterest, and the first little gem that I found was from www.lizzieroe.com.  One of her posts for “Make it Monday” made me swoon.

I’ve never met her, but we might be kitchen style soul mates.  I idolize Julia Child, love all things that look “chalkboard”, and the fonts… I die. I HAD to have it.  I immediately came up with a million ways that I wanted to use this print, but couldn’t decide…so I thought about it for a while.

Next, I found this little guy:

His picture was kind of everywhere… I credit google images?

How cute is he, right?  I decided he needed to live in my kitchen too and bought a white frame from AC Moore to feature him in.  He’s going to live above the pantry where that Coke sign is currently hanging out.  I love him, and think I shall name him Fredrick. (Like I said, a little quirky)

  
 

Back to my super cute Julia Child quote print.  I finally decided to put it as part of my meal planner board, and my goodness- the finished product makes me giddy!  Here’s how it all came together:

1) get an 8 frame collage style frame, such as this one: Collage Frame
(I got mine at AC Moore- they are almost ALWAYS on sale, and you can use a coupon!)

2) Pick out your background paper- I used the ministacks of scrapbooking paper in neutral tones.

3) Pick out a super cute picture

4) Print out days of the week on CLEAR Avery Address Labels.  I used the font “Skinny Jeans” found here from misstiina.com

5) Put it all together!

Now I feel like my kitchen will be my dream room!  I can’t wait to move on in, unpack, and start whipping up some new TwiceAround recipes!

What are you LOVIN’ today??
