The saying works for me since I do LOVE to eat :)
I bought this shadow box for $1 at my favorite thrift store!
I sanded it just a little so the paint would go on better.
I painted it using my free sample from Glidden! $0 dollars works for me!
I sanded it up a bit once it dried so the black underneath could come thru.
With the back removed, I was able to trace a perfect fit of canvas fabric.
I bought a remnant of the canvas at 50% off!
The inside of the shadow box backing was lined with a black felt type material so I knew my trusty Heat-n-Bond would give me a nice smooth finish. I just had to cut a square the same size as the material and iron it on.
Next, I added some distress ink to my shiny silverware...I'm not sure if this will ever dry, but they are safely behind glass so no one will ever know :)
Then, it was time to cut a stencil using my Cricut and paint the letters in with "dark chocolate" acrylic paint
I ironed the canvas to the back of the shadow box and the Heat-n-Bond worked like a charm!
I used hot glue to add the silverware...put the shadow box back together...and......
TA-DA! New kitchen art!
Total cost: around $4.00!!
