More Art a la Carte

Continuing on with the decorating phase of our kitchen, we’ve cooked up some super simple art to help fill some space on our l-o-n-g countertop.  In addition to being easy, this artwork is very personal which we always love.

Using RIBBA frames from IKEA, for $9.99 each, we framed a couple of our favorite recipes on basic white copy paper. 

The font used is a free download called Mom’s Typewriter, courtesy of which gives the recipes a rougher feeling than if we’d just used a courier font.

Curious what recipes we used? Well, you won’t find either one given away on our recipes page – they are family “secrets”. Meaning secrets we blog about. These recipes are for the cakes served at our wedding, both the bride’s and groom’s cakes. The groom’s cake also being Grandma Goodwin’s famous chocolate cake.

It’s nice to look at the recipes and remember our happy day, even if we’re just pouring a bowl of cereal in the morning.

Anyone else have something really personal or memorable you’ve framed into great art? Want to check out our other inexpensive kitchen art project? Click here.
