I just had to share a little project that has been in the works for a ridiculously long amount of time. Ridiculous because what should have taken me a few hours has dragged out into a couple of months. Life just seems to work that way for me lately. I'm stirring too many pots at once.
Am I the only one who loves all of the penny art/projects out there on Pinterest right now? I found inspiration for this project over at The Crafted Sparrow. I did a few things the way she did and some a bit differently. I took some big paper mache letters I found at Joann's, spray painted them copper, and then hot glued my pennies on. I put all of mine face up and pointing about the same direction because it would make me a little bonkers otherwise.
I had the perfect space for my new project. An annoying ceiling drop between my kitchen and family room that I think these dress up a bit.
I'm really loving how they look and can't believe that it took me so long to get them done.
Please ignore the stupid hook below my cool new letters. I can't get everything perfect all at once.;)
Now I'm motivated to get that tacky thing out of there. Problem is that the screw holding it in is about 2 inches long and huge in diameter so patching it is gonna be a pain in the butt.
Ok, back on topic...I now feel like I'm perfectly on trend. Kidding. I'm just following my motto that only the ideas I love go into my home, and my new EAT sign is something I L.O.V.E! Plus, I made it for about 8 bucks and saved myself having to roll a bunch of pennies.
Have any of you out there tried projects with that loose change you have under the couch cushions?
