See me DIY a DIY

Hey y'all!  If you like this Restoration Hardware DIY, then you will love our Beach House Remodel.  Life is good!

Please visit our progress at

and let us know what you think. 

Hello all!   
Happy New Year!  Yes, sadly that is how long it has been since I last posted.  We have been CRAZY busy with family schedules and the biggest time suck of all….
moving into a new house! 
 More on that later. 

Recently, I spied a wonderful DIY project over at 
from Gardners 2 Bergers

Restoration Hardware Eye Chart Hack
(insert shout out to Becca here!  Excellent job!)

 It turned out great!  I had to try this one.....

I pulled up the Restoration Hardware website on one half of my screen and Photoshop on the other half.  

Next, I layered black for the background and selected a font that resembled the eye chart.  
Helvetica Bold appeared to do the trick so I began creating the rows of letters in the layer tool.  

(My Photoshop version vs the Restoration Hardware)

I continued to add the letters and numbers until I arrived at this final project.  Total time creating in Photoshop:  45 minutes.  

 Now it was time to send it off to Staples to be printed and mounted.  $9.99 later...voila!  

I wanted to use a basic frame on this project.  

I will let you know where I decide to hang this little guy!  

Thanks for checking out my DIY Eye Chart!

Living Green,
