The sign is one I've had for a while. It used to say 'mia cucina'. I wanted to do something new but couldn't decide what. I finally settled on Bon Appetit. (I know, how original!) I repainted it in white and then used carbon paper to trace my printed design on the wood. Being that I am a font-aholic, it took me forever to choose which one to use. I have seriously downloaded hundreds of fonts from all over the internet. You just can't have too many! This one is called Edwardian Script.
I filled in the lettering with black paint and added a fluer de lis. I love it!!!
The whole window is a new look. I recently made the new valance and found the cute little crystal urns at Michael's. The rooster was on clearance at Joann's. It was copper but a coat of black paint and it is tres frenchy!
After the sign was finished and I did some housework (YUCK!) I headed out to do some thrifting. I found some great frames and a plate rack at GWO and some glassware for a holiday display I am working on.
My last stop was Joann's for some fabric. This beautiful toile was on sale:
I've got something fun planned with it so check back soon! Linking up to the parties below.
