So here's what I was cooking up in the kitchen with the letters.
Our ceilings are about 25 feet high so I have a lot of room to work with. The kitchen just felt like it needed something to take up some of the space. In Hobby Lobby's craft area you can buy these giant wooden letter cut outs. That sure made my job easier. I painted them Red, Green, and a Black-Brown and found none of those colors popped against the logs. I guess after three paintings I was ready to stick with a color. Cornbread yellow is what they are now, with a little dark wax around the edges to dirty them up.
Had my smart hubby hang them, I had no idea how to make them all the same height. He had no problem getting the job done.
Here's another change I made. I like my Salt and Pepper handy. I cook dinner every night for my family and still bake from scratch. When a recipe calls for S&P I like to get a good dose of it, and this seems to be the best way. Just reach in and get a pinch.
I love that the bowls have a pattern inside and outside.
I also have this enamel ware pot next to my stove and it holds my oils, vinegars, and my morning maple syrup. I don't like things cluttering up my counter tops so this is the easiest way to keep them gathered in one place and also have them handy at the same time.
Thanks to all who played along in the guessing game. Two of you were smart cookies and guessed the word right away.
