A few weeks ago I showed you this sign that I made for my kitchen,
using wallpaper sample books.
Until Butchy is feeling better, I don't want to leave him alone,
so I decided to go out to the shop and check our left over paint cans.
I found two cans that I got from Ace Hardware on free paint day.
A can of aqua from last Fall and a can of turquoise from this Spring.
So I decided to see what I could do to give our kitchen a free or almost free make over.
I started painting the walls aqua,
and this sign just didn't work with what I had in mind.
Here's my sign re-do :)
The hen and rooster that I used was from . . . guess, a wallpaper sample book.
I also had a textured wallpaper boarder that I picked up at Goodwill a year or so ago.
I always keep my eyes open for pretty wallpaper at yard sales and thrift stores.
Here you can see the aqua wall.
Believe it or not, if I use primer, I can paint my three main walls with a quart of paint.
There are so many doors and cupboards that I really do not have much wall space.
I'll probably have to actually get out the checkbook
and purchase one quart for my accent wall.
That is a re-do on a budget, right:)
I love it!
Here's my finished sign.
I found some wood trim scraps in Steve's wood pile to add to each end.
Big difference . . . I was ready for a change,
but planned to do it this fall.
I can work in the kitchen a little bit each day
and before you know it . . . new kitchen :)
Butchy is feeling much better.
His tube is out and the report on his skin was wonderful.
It had been pulled away from his body, and the our Vet said that it could die.
If that happens they have to treat it like an open wound.
Praise God it's okay and he's doing very well.
Thank you all for your prayers.
God loves all of his marvelous creatures.
This song has been in my heart this week:
Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
Don't let your circumstances steal your joy.
Wishing you all a very good day.
I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
