Hope you all are doing well!? We are enjoying the end of summer and trying to make the most of everyday. Fall is approaching and I am embracing the season more than ever.
I used to get a little sad to think summer is over, but instead I focus on the beauty of the colors, cooler weather to come, and fun activities/festivals this time of year brings. As most things in life, perspective makes all the difference.♥
“The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.” – Chuck Swindoll
Lately, I have been working on new designs, pallet projects and some other exciting opportunities before the year ends (I’ll share more about that soon!).
I love the process of making something out of plain old pieces of wood. It’s fun to see something come alive with a little bit of paint! 🙂After cutting and assembling a few boards together, I brushed on a quick base coat of turquoise acrylic paint.After it dried (10 minutes), I chalked out my sentiment/verse on the board(s). I already filled in the ‘home’ with white acrylic paint.Then, I painted over the letters with white acrylic paint. When the paint was dry, I finished the piece by adding a brown stain.Now, this old pallet can brighten up a dull room with a cheerful blessing for all who enter it!
“May the LORD bless you and keep you” today and always!

This is such a cute and easy project with major impact Michelle. That color really stands out. And it’s just as well because it has an important message to convey.
