So when I heard about the Pinterest Challenge a few days ago I finally got motivated enough to try my hand at one of the bajillion things I pinned. Like this one:
Here is my rendition:
I was originally going to penny up our last name or say Cucina or something to that effect but then I realized I already had letters lefter over from Ethan's nursery and therefore wouldn't have to buy any. Since I wanted to hang the letters in our kitchen I had two options for what to say: EAT or TEA (and given that we don't actually drink any tea but do plenty of eating I think you know what I ended up going with, although to be totally honest if this word were to represent us it would really say CHOCOLATE or ICE CREAM instead).
Repainted the letters a copper color:
This was after three coats. In retrospect I think spray painting would have been much faster.
Glue, glue, glue away. I ended up scattering three layers of pennies to cover all the bare spots. The E6000 glue worked really well.
And here is the finished results!
