Farm House Friday Post

I think this is my First FARM HOUSE FRIDAY POST … not for sure, but that statement is full of alliteration,too!
This past week I showed you the changes I made to the backsplash area behind my stove. HERE K-mantel with corrugated metal and pallet shelf 022
Well, this week---while I was supposed to be working on Thanksgiving preparations…  I was doing other things in the kitchen instead.
I liked my ‘pallet turned utensil crate’…but felt it needed something else…
Kitchen wallpaper- Cutlery 006
today I added some  cool ‘signage’!  I just couldn’t resist any longer; I had to try my hand at it.
Kitchen wallpaper- Cutlery 008
What do you think?  This is the perfect little touch it needed, I think.
I found a font I liked and printed it off… and did this the old fashioned way.  I traced it out onto the wood and then filled it in with a SHARPIE~oh, yes. I DID. Afterwards I ‘DINGED IT UP with a hammer in the graphic portion and brushed some Ooops! paint on it with a dry brush and wiped it off~ the final touch was sanding it off to just the right fade. All done!  I like it.
The other thing I did in my kitchen this week; I put wallpaper on the backsplash of my kitchen counter.  CHICKEN TRIVET BLUE BACKSPLASH Here’s a peek.
  I’ll show you more of that in another post; I’m going to live with it for a few days over the holidays probably and see what I think of it. Right now?  I just don’t think the color is right. 
It is blue gray with Fired Steel (gun metal with a slight sheen) over the top lightly.  Right now I’m thinking it just isn’t doing it for me.
That’s it for now.
Happy Thanksgiving!
God bless you and thanks for Reading!

Can't wait to see what you do to the backsplash. We actually did some sprucing up around here last week, but nothing really fun like making a new utensil box. :( Luv ya!

I can't believe you added the writing on the wooden box. Looks like it has always been there.
