Wall Art in Your Kitchen

Kim Jeffress for Heidi Swapp Wall Art words

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!
