The kitchen the previous homeowners left us has a nice layout, but lacks the pretty I would like.  The budget lacks the money to make the pretty I would like.  Sooo, instead of remodeling my kitchen, it gets….a picture!  
Just how frugal is this gal?  The picture my kitchen is getting is going to be in a free frame from my mom.  (I dug it out of the “items to be donated” box!)  This picture frame is getting painted with free paint from a lovely little coupon I used at a hardware store!  Plus, I created the print with chevron digital paper I had for my store.  
If you need to add some pretty somewhere, you can have the print for free!

1.  I took the frame and sanded it.  I am a novice painter (should be read, when I paint it looks like it was done by a little kid!!).   I guessed on what sandpaper to use and used 220.  It seemed to do the trick.  Then I wiped off the dust with a rag when I was done.
 2.  I love bold greens so I choose “Vine Green” by Benjamin Moore.   After I got it home, I was a little nervous it was going to look too primary in color, but it turned out great.  It took 3 coats of paint to get it to the look I was going for.
3.  I waited for it to dry, printed off the print, cut down the print to 8×10 and stuck it in there!  I am in LOVE.  I love green…and I love chevron.  Perfect combo.

4.  I plan to hang it right above my sink after I get a command strip for the wall.  It is tiled, so I figured that would be the best way to hang it.  I hope you love it too and get to add some pretty somewhere in your house!
