A few years ago we remodeled our kitchen. Everything looks gorgeous, except for this wall that I have pretty much hated now for years. See what I mean?
Can you think of any worse way to check the time?
So I decided something MUST be done. I found this great clock at Wal-mart for about $15, used a framed cork board (I don't remember where I got that thing. I keep a lot of extra stuff around, can you tell?) and found a quote board that I had bought on clearance for $6 at Roberts awhile back.
In my basement storage I came across this great frame I had bought on clearance for $1. With a little ink, some scrapbook paper and a die-cut letter, it turned into a whimsical piece to add to my wall.
Isn't this much better?
I love that I now have a spot to post important notes, menus, and kids' job lists. Even my 3-yr-old boy keeps saying, "Mom, I really like that new clock!" Who knew toddlers even noticed stuff like that? And all for about $20. Not bad.
Have you ever done a wall-makeover?
