Finishing my Favorite Room!

Way back in August Ken and I painted our kitchen.  
It was a lot of work, but I'm just thrilled with the result.

Then Ken got busy hanging new lighting.  Some of you might remember the What I Ate Wednesday post where I had to show you pictures of my pizza boxes because the kitchen looked like this.
(Note to self: healthy family bloggers should be able to do better than 
pizza boxes on What I Ate Wednesday.)

Anyway, when we painted I took down all the "artwork" that had been hanging up since we moved here nine years ago.  Once the paint dried, I just didn't put most of it back on the walls.  Ken started to worry that I was going to leave the walls bare and call it finished.

So when I got the opportunity to write about Alphabet Photography, I got all excited! 
Finally... some real art in this house!

When the package arrived it was beautifully wrapped.

And it even came with a beautiful Thank You card.

When you get to the Alphabet Photography website you get to enter the word of your choosing.  Then the artwork is custom-made just for you.  The "letters" are photos of everyday objects that look like letters.  Then the photos are arranged in a collage to create whatever word you like.

I even got to click on individual letters and select different options until I had just the look I wanted.

I chose our last name, "BERLIN" to hang right above my piano in our kitchen/dining area.  
The frame is a 3" solid wood frame with a dark Chocolate finish accented with gold leaf.

If you've been to my house you know that the piano & kitchen are my two favorite places to spend time.  I'm so pleased to have such a lovely piece to look at while I'm there!

This piece is really one of my new favorite things.  It would make a lovely accent anywhere in your home or if you're feeling generous, an amazing one-of-a-kind Christmas gift.

Oh, and it's even hand signed and dated by the artist, making it extra-fabulous.
