There's No Place Like Home

Hello Sweet Friends.

I wanted to show you something I found on Etsy to put over my armoire.  It is a long narrow space so was not sure what would look right up there.  

The space is only 13 inches to the bottom of the crown molding.  I knew I was going to have to find something that was less than about 10 inches in height.

I looked on Etsy and a few other places but just could not find any signs or salvage pieces that would fit in this space.  Either too small or too large in height.  

I found these metal cut out words on Etsy.  I ordered them in White but when I put them up against my light gray wall they seemed to fade and look too much like the wall color.  So a can of Rustoleum stone gray spray paint darkened them enough to stand out on the light walls.


There really is not place like home!
Have a wonderful Sunday and great start to the new week.
Hope to have my new kitchen table and chair re love for you this week.

  1. Oh Kris....you've got that right: There is no place like home. Even if the world outside your door is unsettled, who we share our home with and how we make it feel comfortable and cozy makes a huge difference. I love what you did and it's simply yet effective. Your new TV unit cabinet is really, really well done. BRAVO to you both!

  4. Love it, Kris! And I couldn't agree more. There truly is no place like home, like m little nest. When I come home from work and open my door, I know that I'm entering my sanctuary. I can almost hear Dorothy clicking her ruby slippers and saying the words, "There's no place like home." Hugs, Nancy

  5. How cute is this! I love the font and your choice for color is spot on. It is just enough for the space over the armoire. Will have to check out letters on Etsy. xoxo

  12. And it fits perfectly! I wish I had access to the pieces of furniture you've switched out to other pieces because I've loved them all.
