We all need easy projects. Especially, easy projects that turn out great and add character to your home.
That’s exactly what I have in store for you today!
I’ve been practically obsessed with this picture since I stumbled across it on the BH&G website.
If it were possible, I would totally copy and paste that into my kitchen. But since we just built our home and didn’t do white cabinets (My hubby refused. He likes wood grain, remember??), I’m just day dreaming. I can, however, take aspects of what I love and make them possible in my own home.
And what I love, love, love, just happens to be something easy to re-make and bring into my own kitchen. The lettered pots.
Lucky for me, I do have the same glass door cabinets on the very top, so I’m pretty close to the real deal!
In our small town we have a really nice craft store. They carry an entire aisle of potting supplies and pots. And on that aisle, they have an entire section that’s dedicated to terracotta pots. Ranging from big to little, short to tall, they have them all. And they’re so reasonably priced!
I spent $1.00 each for the larger pots and 75 cents for the smaller ones.
I grabbed some left over white paint and started painting 4 of the pots.
I didn’t even bother to paint the inside. I knew you’d never know since they’re going in such a high cabinet.
While the paint was drying, I started playing with my silhouette machine again. I can proudly say that I didn’t have a single problem this time…. I think it’s warming up to me!
Or, it’s tired of watching me make a complete fool of myself as I scream, shout and pull my hair out…
In my silhouette design program, I chose 4 letters that meant something to me: A M S N. They’re our initials.
This was honestly the hardest part. I played around with several different letter combinations, but it seemed all of them were too much like actual words. I wanted random letters.
On my silhouette, I cut the letters on black vinyl.
I cut around each letter then removed the excess vinyl. With a razor blade, I lifted up the letter and placed it on the pot.
Easy, I tell ya! And they look wonderful together…
I used a couple cardboard lids for a riser. It was the perfect height and the cabinet door trim hides them.
I just love, love, love how they look!
Those letters… they make me happy.
I’m still on the hunt for other white pottery, but I love how these little pots tie it all together.
This simple project has left me smiling from ear to ear. And, you better believe I asked Anthony if he “noticed anything different in the kitchen” as soon as he came home. When he said he did I was happy and went on and on and on about how lovely they were and how happy they made the kitchen.
He just looked at me and said something like, “They don’t spell anything…”
After I told him that they stood for our initials, he totally got it!
So, there ya have it! An easy project that only takes a few minutes and adds that character we all love!
I’m off to stare at my lettered pots… just kidding… kind of!
