It Will Do For Now

Monday, September 08, 2014

As some of you know, I am constantly working on something in my home. I have had something wrong with me for over ten years, so when I get the chance, I do what I am able.

In part of my small kitchen there are metal cabinets on the wall opposite my stove. I would love to be able to replace them or refinish them. I can not afford to replace them, and generally I am not physically able to really refinish them like I would like to.

I had looked online for some decals or some word sayings to put on my cabinets. I just wanted something to spruce them up a little. The decals and word sayings were pretty expensive. So, I was just thinking that this was another idea blown to the wind.

So, a couple of days back I went to a 'Dollar Tree' store across town. I saw these peel off sayings and other decals. I could not believe they were only a dollar. And, they are removable.

O.K., I will admit, it is not exactly what I really want. But, for now, it will do.

I cleaned and dried those old cabinets. Then I put on those 'saying' decals. This has kept me busy and put a different spin on these old cabinets.

I have included a picture.

The first saying on the left says: "A Dream Is A Wish The Heart Makes." The middle saying says: "Bless This Home." The last one on the right says: "With God All Things Are Possible."

It will do, for now. emoticon

p.s. The old fruit decals were already on there. No telling how long they had been there. This house was built in 1949.

    I love the sayings and the Decals are beautiful. You have done a wonderful job. I'm sure it is up-lifting to read them every time you go into your kitchen. God Bless hun.

    I love your little sayings! They look very nice on the cabinets. Is there any way for you to remove the fruit decals? Maybe fingernail polish remover? You could try a tiny spot and see if it works.

    How fun and sweet is that! I love Dollar Tree! Every time I go to visit my mom (about every 2 weeks) we have to make a trip to the Dollar Tree. The cupboards actually look to be in good shape, and except for the fact that you would like something else, I'm happy you found a way to spruce them up a bit. What a great idea! Hugs, Jeannie

    I love these terrific decals and what a bargain you got buying them at the $1 store. You did a terrific job in putting them up, WTG. I read you haven't been feeling very well today so I hope you feel a lot better tomorrow. Take good care of yourself.

    Hugs & Love,

    Those decals are beautiful! What a lucky find! I like the fruit decals, too. They bring back many warm memories. We always lived in Navy housing and we weren't supposed to put things like that on cabinets. I did it anyway, and then spent sooo much time removing them when we moved. I didn't care; I loved them.
