Okay, so the hubs and I got a new toy that I will share with you all at another time. With the toy we were able to make a headboard for Nate's bed. I had some left over wood and the idea clicked and this is what I came up with. I only used things that I had so the cost was right up my alley.....FREE! The board was a 1/2 inch plank (do not know the size it is now because I did not measure it). I used my scraps of vinyl left from other projects and cut out the words with my Cricut (which I love). I painted the board black first then when it was dry I applied the vinyl wording and crown then mod podged over it to secure the vinyl forever, forever, forever. LOL Does anyone know that movie? I love it. LOL

Any hoo.....

I am planning on putting in the computer/pass through room when I am done decorating it. That post will be coming soon.

Not bad for just using what I had. I like it. Craft on ladies!! :o)

P.S. I was cleaning the Christus (?) and it was drying when I took the pic so no I do not leave on the kitchen counter all the time. It belongs on top of the China cabinet which I am going to revamp very soon. You will see that one too when its done! Oh the things to look forward to. so stay tuned. :o)


  1. I love this, Margo! It's always fun to make something cute w/out having to buy anything. I saw this somewhere else recently & saved it. It's soooo appropriate for moms! =)

  2. Love this! What a great way to use up scraps.

    I really need to look at buying a circut machine.

    Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. Love it! And I totally need to follow that advice. ;)
