Kate's Project...

You have heard me talk about my oldest daughter, Kate.  Well, she decided that she wanted to make a wall hanging out of wood slats, so we...
went to Home Depo and purchased these thin slats and thin strips to be used as supports.  She laid them out on the floor to be sure the size would be good...
Who is it behind those Foster Grants?  (Okay, that was a private joke for Kate - I used to always say that when they were little, wearing sunglasses.)  She's at the checkout buying her wares...
She watered down brown paint and painted the wood.  I believe she may have used sand paper to rough it up a little.
And she ended up with this.  Her roommate, Katie, traced the letters on and then Kate painted within the "lines."  Nice job!  I really like it and am thinking I may need to do something similar.  She got her inspiration from something she saw on Pinterest.  I get my inspiration from her.

Oh, this is really cool, Jean. Love the project and I'm smiling because I know how happy it must make you when one of your girls creates something cool. I always love when Carrie does some crafting.

What a good daughter, to be an inspiration for you. I like that the idea is so adaptable.

Mom I've never heard the term Foster Grant's before.
