As you may know I have been working on a pantry makeover at my house. The ceilings in there are very high so I knew that I wanted to hang something on the wall. My original intent was to hang letters. If you saw my pantry inspiration post, I had an EAT picture on there but I just kept seeing it everywhere and wanted to do something different. So this is what I came up with.
It's so cheap just to buy lumber at Home Depot and this piece was already cut perfectly to fit my space. At only about $3.00, you can't beat that!
Then I added the stain. It is Min Wax ebony. Remember if you are staining to go in the direction of the grain.
This is post stain. I chose a piece of wood with a lot of knots which I love.
I stenciled the letters next. Use a fairly dry brush and blot on to prevent the paint from bleeding under the stencil.
The pantry is coming along and I should be ready for the reveal soon. I have the same item, lighting, that is holding me up in both the pantry and the laundry room. I wish I could produce a line of light fixtures myself because I can't find what I'm looking for at the price I want it. Very frustrating! Wish me luck...
