Numbered Stairs

Happy Sunday to you!!!!  I hope you have had an awesome start to this new week.
A little while back I decided to paint the stair risers. So glad I did. I LOVE it.

Then of course, I get board with it. I have seen in blogland and on Pintrest fun little numbers or silhouettes on stair risers. Well.. since I recently FINALLY got my Silhouette Cameo I decided to play with some vinyl.

Easy as pie. Pick out the font you want to use, size it to the desired size, cut, peel and stick!!!!

Here is what your left with from just a few fun minutes of  crafty time!!
My Handsome Hubby thought I was crazy.. until he saw them up. Then, of course, like always he thought it was pretty ingenious! HA every time I tell ya =)

Thanks for stopping by today!!!!

Family Name Sign

My goodness.. its been a while. How does time fly by so fast. I actually have not been that crafty lately. I sold my Cricut to get a Silhouette Cameo. I waited quite a while after selling the Cricut before I finally got the Silhouette. The Family Name Sign below was made with the Cricut.

I bought a cheap random cabinet door from Habitat Restore. $3 whopping dollars! I already had the paint and vinyl and the font on a Cricut cartridge so this project cost $3.00. LOVE!!!

First I painted the cabinet door black. Then I just cut letters out of vinyl. Layed the letters where i wanted them on the cabinet. Painted the entire cabinet door creamy white (paint left over from when I painted my kitchen cabinets HERE). Then all that was left to do was peel the vinyl off leaving the black paint exposed. Viola!

I am not sure if this is its permanent home but i like it here for now. I have it just sitting on the credenza that I redid HERE . I have it just sitting on top of the credenza, not hanging from the wall. I am considering putting by the door out to the garage after installing some hooks on it?
