Project Time!

Kids are back in school.
Got it.
Routine is back.

You know what that means?

It's Project Time!

Who's with me?

I'm going to invite you to join me on this one.
Kind of like a group effort, here.

I'm pretty sure I've got two other bloggers behind me on this.

Peardownliving (Seattle)
Mi Casa (San Diego)

Let me know if you'd like to join in on the home project fun.
We'd love to have you.

We are going to document our progress and
(hopefully) post some before and after pics.

This is what we are attempting:

Adore, right?

This particular one is a DIY project.

Here is the same "look" at Restoration Hardware but for a lot more moolah.

This is called a Subway Sign used way back when to indicate the next stop
on a subway, bus or tram. Cool, huh?

As you can imagine, you can personalize your words into phrases, mottos to live by,
or even places you and your family have visited or lived...the list goes on.

Here is a website, I found, that actually specializes in this very thing.
Check it out:

This is what they made for another blogger.


Are you feeling it?
Can you see the possibilities, here?

Rather than pay someone else to have fun and make this...
we can roll up our sleeves and dive in, right?

Regardless, this is my next mission.
No timetable, though, so be patient with me.

Just thought I'd sweeten the creative pot with the next fun idea.

Tell me what you think...
As always, thanks for visiting.


  1. This is on my "to do" list!! Trying to think of the words, phrases .... theme to use!

    I think we should plan on a start date!

  2. Kristy, Wendy and anyone else, I am in. I have a canvas and have been thinking up my plan of attack. I will keep you posted.

  3. I like the idea of special places:
    Monterey Bay
    Coronado Beach

    You get the picture. Any other ideas? Places?

  4. I create signs and you might want to consider what I can do for you. Customization is free and shipping is free, too.
    If you have any questions, please let me know.

  5. Hint for vinyl lettering...Office Depot usually carries Chartpak Sets of vinyl lettering. Usually basic typeface and sizing is limited, but a time saver.
