EAT

You lovelies know how much I love my kitchen right?  Just in case you didn't let me just tell you,  I am pretty sure it is my favorite room in the whole house and the first room in the house that feels really like me.  It is a little traditional, a little country, a little modern, and a little retro vintage. Who knew all of that could live together in harmony?  I think all of those things describe me as well as my style, if you know me in real life feel free to comment if you think that is a good description of me and my kitchen.  As much as I love my kitchen I have a few more projects to do before it is complete.  One of those projects was this sad little corner, it had no excitement or interest happening and just looked a little unloved.


(Isn't the vintage stool the cutest,  Hubby gave to me a few years ago)

 Well, all of that changed after a visit to this weeks Friend, Emily's blog.  Emily had the cutest sign hanging over her kitchen table and as soon as I saw it, I knew I would be doing it for my sad little corner.  If you missed her version check out my interview with her here.

So for my birthday the girls got me these cute MDF letters from Micheal's


I got busy painting them,  I used the same color as my cabinets and then trimed the edge in red.  The red trim idea was from my wonderful husband.  I was originally going to paint the whole letters red, but it was a little too much, but then the cream seemed a little boring, so in came hubby with his great idea to save the day.


I love the outcome and my little kitchen corner is sad no more.

They look great, the red sides really makes them!

Sarah said...

Oh I love that! Given my six month old's eating habits I'm thinking EAT and SPIT would be good for our kitchen!

Margaret said...

Ok so I know Cha Cha and her kitchen. The way she described her kitchen is also who she is: little traditional, a little country, a little modern, and a little retro vintage, but it all works together. I love this girl!!!!

Cha Cha said...

Thanks, Mrs. Tippens. I love you too.

this blessed nest said...

i guess you know what i am going to say...don't you???
i mean, we say the phrase every other time to each other...

guess who has those 3 letters in her breakfast room? same font style but all red?

this is so fun. i think we should start keeping track, just to see how many more things we have done or have that are the same.
theses turned out really good! but of course i would say that -since we have the every
same thing.

what your friends said to you at the ball field & how you wrote to tell me what they said brought a smile to my face all day!

love to you & your family!
HAPPY EASTER!

This is a great addition to your corner. I have a spot in my kitchen that I want to do this, but I need to find smaller letters.

Wendy said...

They look great and I love the red edges. It give great dimension!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Cute!!! I want to do this in my kitchen. But then, I don't need to encourage anyone in my family to "eat". I should spell out "diet" instead. lol.

Luv the "EAT"...maybe I should do this in my new kitchen:)

Blessings,
Linda

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

I had my own chair just like that one growing up in my Nana's basement kitchen. She placed it right next to the return on the stove so I would always be warm. I loved that kitchen (and chair) with all my heart - still do. Thanks yo for the memory.

They look wonderful and I bet they didn't break the bank! The red trim is genius, and gorgeous paint on the walls.
hugs,
Debra

Oh.
So.
Cute!

I want some too! The red on the sides does just make it pop. Just perfect for this little corner!

I love how you talk about your kitchen. It really inspires me and gives me hope that someday I can feel like that too. A little bit of all the things I love all rolled together in one super important room. I can make that happen too! Thanks so much for sharing your sweet kitchen corner!

Party of Nine said...

Aw, how crafty! Love how you filled up that little corner :)

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

Hi Cha Cha! That turned out great! I love the hint of red on the sides of the letters.

I love your stool! My grandma had one when I was growing up. When we'd come over for dinner we kids used to argue over who got to sit on it. We'd usually flip the seat up and sit on that step part. Your post brought back some great memories!

Thanks for linking up to Make it Yours day!

Lori said...
