Eat, Drink And Be Merry
 I've had this sign for eight years now!  I love the saying.  It will always remind me of a song by the Dave Matthews Band(my favorite band) Tripping Billies. We even used it on our wedding reception invites...Eat, Drink And Be Married.  Yep, that's how much I love this saying and that band. 
Anyways, the sign I love, but I was not loving the color.  It just didn't match anything in our house.  Nothing a little paint couldn't fix, right?!
 So, while we were painting our bathroom this weekend I took some of the paint and used the existing letters as a stencil.  Easy right.  Just took a little time, but not that bad!
 When it was dry, I lightly sanded over the trim and the letters.
 I love how you can see just a little of the darker color peeking through!
 Here it is in a color more my style!  What do you think? 
 It fits perfectly in the nook above our kitchen sink. 
 I added a few other cute accessories to the nook...
an old meat grinder given to us by my husband's Grandma.  We all know the famous birdie plate from Pier1. Plus a big white plate and a white tea pot.  Super easy.
I'm loving the color now.  So much brighter and pleasing to my eyes.


  1. So wonderful!! Love that quote!

  2. SWEET! Don't you just love taking something you already have and completely changing the look? That looks great, Tanya! Love it!

  3. What a great idea and it looks so pretty with your treasures. :)

  4. I love it! Now I want to make a sign for my kitchen!
