Ever since Heidi released her Wall Art words available at Michaels stores and in particular the word EAT I have been anxious to add one into my kitchen decor. I wanted it to coordinate with the colors in my kitchen and I think I may have pulled it off with some mint paint and the gorgeous Mint Marquee Love glitter!
I have had this beautiful antique metal and glass platter for a while now and once I started planning how I was going to decorate my word I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, create a little collection of favorite things on the platter.
Let me share how easy it was to create my Two tone Word Art word.
I started by gathering some favorite pieces from my kitchen and the EAT Wall Art word and playing around with color combos. Once I settled on mint and yellow I got working.
To decorate my word I gave it a quick coat of white paint to act as a kind of undercoat for the colored paint. It really makes the the top coat of paint more brighter when you add this step.
Next I added a coat of Mint paint that I got at Michaels when I was visiting the US in January. I then allowed this paint to completely dry.
I then took some washi tape and laid it down about a third of the way down the word and painted on the Marquee Love glue and then sprinkled on the Mint Marque Love glitter. The washi is essentially to create a nice straight line with the glitter.
Finally I removed the washi, tapped off the excess glitter and my word was complete. I allowed it to dry over night just to ensure the glue was completely dry.
I added some of my favorite pieces to the platter including the beautiful frame and simply laid the Wall Art against the photo frame and placed it in my kitchen.
I love the pops of color it brings to my kitchen, it makes me happy each time I walk into my kitchen and I look at it!
Grab the Wall Art EAT word from your local Michaels stores, some coordinating paint and glitter and create your own decor piece for your kitchen!
