SWEET LITTLE SIGN

Another Hobby Lobby pit stop!! It's getting to be a bad habit. I tried to drive right on by, but somehow, someway, my foot always hits that brake peddle and my van always makes it's way to that right turning lane!! Darn it!!
I found this adorable little sign....

I loved the color and the detail...especially the cute little bird. I loved the price even more!! I payed a whoppin $3.50.


I added the ribbon....


and I found a very nice place for it to look adorable!!
I also picked up another bunny to add to my spring collection. With the half off sale, I payed $5.
Now for my latest bright idea...or we will find out anyway!! I ran across a very charming blog called Southern Hospitality where she gives a tutorial on adding picture frame moulding to your wall to give it a recessed paneled type look. Did that make sense???
Mind you, I have never used a power tool in my life, but I am always eager to learn!! I plan to start with the chair rail, which should be easy enough as this is a very small room. Small room=few cuts in this case. The only thing that I am still a bit hesitant on is the doorways. As you can see they are not trimmed out and I have no plans to do so...therefore I will need to learn how to do a mitered return??? Trial and error I'm sure it will be!!! Wish me luck!!

Off to watch the Waltons!!
Have a great night!!

Love the sign...the color is fabulous. We don't have a Hobby Lobby in Minneapolis. I checked out their website and we have 2 stores about 45 minutes to an hour away. There may be a road trip in my future.

The sign is very cute and I cannot wait to see how you do with that molding. We don't have a Hobby Lobby anywhere near by but visiting all these blogs and seeing how many of you mention how great that place is, makes me wish we had one here...maybe it's a good thing we don't as I would be broke all the time, lol!
Have a great day!

Great sign and great price. We don't have a Hobby Lobby in CT but I've been to one in CO. I should be glad they are not near me for my budget! You are very creative ... I looked down at some of your posts. Good luck with the chair rail. I just had my husband (who is a plumber, not a carpenter) install a beadboard ceiling and trim in the bathroom. All I had to do was paint it!
