E.A.T. for the Kitchen (DIY Project)


I have a spot on my wall between the dining area and my kitchen that I just didn't know what to put there.


I didn't want a picture and I didn't want any type of shelf. I already feel like my counters are crowded. But it is so plain and boring.

 Then I saw this...


Perfect!!! I could just go to my local craft store and pick up some supplies for my DIY project.


I bought the letters at Michael's. The letters were $3.50 each but I had enough coupons for 40% off each one. The paint was on sale for 50 cents and the brush was on sale for 13 cents and the varnish was $6.50 but I used a coupon for 50% off. Total price for this project $17.60 (before tax). What I paid for with coupons $8.08 (before tax).


I just love how it turned out.
