Enjoy Life

SONY DSC

A good motto to live by ~ Enjoy Life.  This is what I finally decided to put on the wood piece I picked up at Goodwill {for $3.99} a few weeks ago.  Here is the before.

I scoured Pinterest, blogs and Etsy looking for some wording that hit me as something I would like to see above our front door, which is where I want to hang this sign.  I randomly came across this vinyl while searching.

ENJOY LIFE - beautiful wall decal reminds us to treasure every moment

Ordering a vinyl was the easy way to make this sign, although it took so long to get I had come up with an alternative that would have involved transferring and painting lettering onto the sign.  The lettering finally came before I started the less simple way so I did wind up using it. I ordered the lettering in white because I painted the board black.

I thought it would stand out better and go with the black that is in the gallery lay-out on the adjacent wall.

So, there it is.  A simple reminder to Enjoy Life.

A perfect, little re-do for your home....I've got four couch pillows to re-do and I' still racking my brain for ideas for words to use. It better happen soon, my sherpa covers are cold weather appeal!
