I have this big black filing cabinet sitting right near the entry to my home. Because of its location, it has a tendency to get very, very cluttered with all the things we drop as we walk in the door.
I hate that!
So, I cleaned it off.
I wish I had gotten a before picture, but that might have been embarrassing. =)
Now, it looked a little too empty and I had a great excuse to start a new project!
I pulled out this framed picture that I found at a dollar store some time long ago.
I pulled out the picture...ripped it off actually. It was in there pretty tight and I lost the frame in the process of removing the picture.
That's ok, though. Because of the way it was put together, the frame wouldn't have worked anyway. So, I salvaged the glass and the board from the back.
The rest...well, it gave its life for the cause and I see that as heroic.
I pulled out my Cricut and cut out some happy words.
I wanted something that would be welcoming as the first thing we saw coming in the door and also reassuring and uplifting as it reminded us what being home means.
I laid my words out on the glass in order to see how it worked.
This was my second or third arrangement. It worked the best.
So I stuck them on permanently.
Next, I got a piece of blue scrapbook paper and Mod Podged it to the back of the glass.
Doesn't that look better?
