Eat, Drink And Be Merry
 I've had this sign for eight years now!  I love the saying.  It will always remind me of a song by the Dave Matthews Band(my favorite band) Tripping Billies. We even used it on our wedding reception invites...Eat, Drink And Be Married.  Yep, that's how much I love this saying and that band. 
Anyways, the sign I love, but I was not loving the color.  It just didn't match anything in our house.  Nothing a little paint couldn't fix, right?!
 So, while we were painting our bathroom this weekend I took some of the paint and used the existing letters as a stencil.  Easy right.  Just took a little time, but not that bad!
 When it was dry, I lightly sanded over the trim and the letters.
 I love how you can see just a little of the darker color peeking through!
 Here it is in a color more my style!  What do you think? 
 It fits perfectly in the nook above our kitchen sink. 
 I added a few other cute accessories to the nook...
an old meat grinder given to us by my husband's Grandma.  We all know the famous birdie plate from Pier1. Plus a big white plate and a white tea pot.  Super easy.
I'm loving the color now.  So much brighter and pleasing to my eyes.
