My kitchen needed a re-do and money was tight. So, started looking around and found some old lattice pieces outside and my kitchen theme became "Outdoors indoors". We painted the cupboards hunter green and the lattice white, put green leaves on with shaped painting foam stamps. Cut to fit and spot glued them on the doors.

This old cupboard was in the basement when I bought my house. I thought it had charm because it was made of car siding which happens to be pretty much in vogue. It was a dull brown so I set to revamping it. I decided to crackle it, using hide glue. (Crackling in this manner is an inexact way so you might like to use a kit or crackle medium instead of the glue) It now it has a place in my kitchen by my dining set. I love it now!

I painted the background with 2 coats of gloss paint. I used apple paints from craft store.
Next, I used Rub-Ons to put on the morning glory pictures over dipper gourd.
Then, I painted 2 more coats of the clear coat gloss paint and hung it up to dry.

I used the quote from a book I have and added my own graphics. I printed it out and put it in a frame over my kitchen sink. It looks so cute, I couldn't resist. Hope you like it.
