I went into this weekend not holding my breath. Things have been busy lately and the summer always means lots of yard work. Not to mention recently
About a year ago I decided I wanted to do something behind the stove.
The husband suggested something a little less traditional and I just happened to be crazy enough to go along with the idea.
Next we went through his LARGE collection of license plates... yes, I said license plates.
I laid out a pattern and he cut them to fit.
Once that was done we locate the studs, hung the board and finished attaching the plates.
Total project cost $0.00!
Okay, so this is definitely not going the traditional route of home decor. And I am probably one of a small handful of women that would not only be okay with this but also love it. It is different, "us" and goes perfectly with the eclectic, vintage, car theme we are working on in the rest of our home.
I couldn't be happier that I went along with his crazy idea.
Most of the plates were picked because they were unique: New York, Hawaii and that really cool old Illinois plate. The others were chose because of their colors and the fact that he would let me cut them up. There were Colorado and Florida ones that I wanted to use but he vetoed chopping them. Lastly the bottom left plate I chose because I was raised in Kansas and was born in 1983 :).
What was your latest project you tackled?
