Isn't that perfect for me? And I especially love the words she wrote on the back:
The rest of the box was filled with chocolate covered almonds - yup, she knows me well!!!
So I love the words, but the colours were not going to match the kitchen in the new house we're building. And I needed to make it a little more "me". My problem was, all my craft paints were packed in a box somewhere and I didn't want to buy new paints when I already have a million colours. So finally, I bought a little palette of about 12 colours - you know, the kind you would get if you bought a paint-by-number kit. And I set to work painting. Some things took a couple coats, like covering the red tomatoes.
Ready to see the after picture?
And a little bit of distressing and antiquing the edges and - I love it!!! Much more "me" now!!!
And it matches my future kitchen so much better now! I can't stop looking at it!!!
