This saying is perfect for our family. We downsized about two years ago from 2400 square feet into an 1100 square foot home. It has been an adjustment for the four of us and our three dogs, but we love living smaller and simpler!

Materials I used for this project:

  • Pallet   (Free)
  • Vinyl   (Hobby Lobby)
