    You inspired me to buy a piece of furniture to redo. I found it for $8 at a local thrift shop in the winter. It’s a beautiful mahogany table that’s the size of a nightstand. I’ll have to search your site on suggestions of how to refinish it. If I can do it this summer I’ll send you a picture. I love the table and want to incorporate it into my bedroom once it’s redone.

    Sharpies are often on my Gratitude List — at least once my kids were beyond a certain age ;-)

    Great project — and your handwriting is beautiful!

    Hi Jami!
    I love it. I must say it would drive me crazy if it couldn’t all be read…If I were to copy you (out of shear flattery, of course) I’d probably choose a list of words that were common; and fill the fabric.
    Following your theme…for example, Fruits of the Spirit, or Names of the Father; Wonderful, Counselor,Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father…

    Because not being able to read the sentence in it’s entirety…WOULD MAKE ME BONKERS. I have the same problem with decoupaged pages! silly… I know.

    Love your project– I have something similar, though quite cheaply made and not near as pretty as yours–but this would look great!

    Jami, that was a perfect idea for the space and fantastic execution. Making a home your own is such an important skill to have. I am grateful every day that the contents of my home reflect who I am. Now if I could just redo my kitchen to keep that theme going…because all bloggers who create recipes should have fabulous kitchens to photograph them in, right? ;)

    What a great idea! I love having the Scripture you chose instead of words that have no meaning to you.
