Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

I stepped out of my comfort
zone and created a wall coat rack
using a Chevron pattern.
I took an already
white cabinet door and
spray painted it flat white because
it was glossy.

Using my Silhouette and the 
large Chevron design, I cut
 a piece of vinyl to use
as a stencil.

I placed the vinyl on the door and
painted over it with grey. I had the paint
color matched at Ace Hardware.

I peeled the vinyl off to
expose the Chevron pattern.

I pre-drilled screw holes and
added 4 round grey knobs with
white circles on them. I purchased these
at our local Habitat for Humanity
They were love at first sight.
I'm kickin' myself for not getting
as many as I could find.

Then...I had creator's block. I wasn't sure what I wanted to add to the center.
Or what color I wanted the vinyl lettering to be.

FINALLY...decided on a saying  and a color
and created an Up Words & On Words
vinyl design.

Life isn't about waiting
for the storm to pass.
It's about learning to
dance in the rain.

And here is how it turned out:

Can't help it but
it turned out just like I
had hoped!!
