Sunshine in my kitchen

I love beautiful things.  I am guilty of ripping pictures out of magazines and cutting up junk mail advertisements, just for the beauty I see in it.  I save greeting cards and scraps of pretty wrapping paper to use in other projects. 

I love to make cards for friends and I've even used these pictures to make a pretty cover for my Bible and journals. 

Here is my latest project:

I have been saving this picture of a sunflower for something special...and then I saw my ugly knife butcher block and decided it needed a makeover. 

I grabbed my bottle of ModPodge and set to work.  I applied a thin coat to the block, smoothed out the picture and then added another coat to seal.  Once that was dry, I added a few more coats to protect the image.  Super simple...but it added a little sunshine to my kitchen!


  1. Brilliant! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Oh, I love it! I'm going to have to start looking more closely at my junk mail and magazines. :)

  3. Love it, so simple! I've been working so much on DIY food, I might have to start clipping pictures for DIY decor! :) (My friend and I in college wound up with our own bathroom and used to rip out gorgeous pages from magazines to decorate the stalls. Made such a difference in the early mornings! :) )

  4. Great idea! :) I have seen painted butchers blocks and have thought about that... but this would be so much easier! Thanks!
