scrap wood wall hanging

When I finished the vestibule last year, I had every intention of showing off a few of the fun little projects in their own posts.

Naturally, about 50 other things distracted me and I never got to it.

I guess that's part of having ADD. That and staying up far too late watching TV shows because I totally just get sucked in: Walking Dead, Sherlock...Conspiracy Theory, Monsters and Mysteries in America, Finding Bigfoot...I'm sorry, I just can't stop watching shows about Sasquatch and Sheepsquatch. I watch them late at night so I won't have to watch D roll his eyes at me. Some people enjoy Honey Boo Boo and Housewives. Me? I like a good conspiracy, a few zombies and country folk who see things in the mountains.

Wait... I was supposed to be writing about this project ... ha ha I do this all the time!

Every time I look at that yellow wall, I smile. I can't help it. It makes me happy.

When D redid the flooring in the bathroom (yet another project I haven't revealed, probably because it's STILL not done!) we had scraps of subfloor left. This piece was the perfect size for something. I put on a coat of green chalky paint (recipe is here)  and it just looked terrible against the yellow. It didn't really have dimension. it looked much better after I hit with a coat of this blue and roughed it up a bit.

I am not lucky enough to have a silhouette or cameo or cricut (I am very much willing to review one and do a giveaway!)  so I used the sticker phrases found at my local dollar store.  This phrase seemed like the perfect welcome to our home.

The flowers are prima paper flowers and I added little jewels to the middle. The ribbon, also taken from my stash.

The only thing I had to buy for this were the words...everything else was scrap! That puts this project in at just $1 Totally my favorite kind of project!
