DIY: a language lesson from the kitchen

in my former life i was a spanish teacher. because of that i am always noticing different moods of language {i know. nerd alert}. the kitchen is all about the imperative mood {or commands.} think about the words you use while in the kitchen. cook. eat. whisk. beat. flip. add.

all of these are commands.

this {and a picture from the lettered cottage} inspired my art work for my newly redecorated kitchen. some of this artwork is a work in progress so you'll have to wait to see it. what i have done was cheap and easy.

supply list:
- again letters from hobby lobby. what i used are the super think letters. $1.99 each.

- paint

- two sided 3m mounting tape $2

how to:
1.) so simple. paint the letters.

2.) hang with the mounting tape to avoid the hassle of putting nails in the wall and making sure they are level.

This is sheer fabulosity! I adore what you have done with these letter/ words and I am a word nerd so this is right up my alley.
Thanks! Love this blog.
