Family Mission Statement Banner

We’ve had a family mission statement for quite a while; but we wanted to post it in a prominent location….a place that we would see it each day and be reminded.

For many years we’ve had this great Pottery Barn banner hanging above our front door that said:  “Pick Up Your Toys”.  It was fun, colorful, and could be seen from pretty much everywhere in our home.  It’s also a part of the living room—and a perfect candidate for a makeover as we have been redoing everything else. {woohoo!}

When I had to take it down to paint the walls—it hit me! With just a little bit of redo we could use it for our family mission statement.  So, I painted over the yellow with the same color as the wall paint—-but with the yellow underneath it gave it a bit of a different tint. {perfect!}

Then, with some primer I painted over the old words—-SEVERAL TIMES!  Whew!  Those words did not want to go away. But, alas, they did.

I left the wonderful little birds and outline just as they were–they looked great with what we were doing in the living room.

Then, on to the fun part—-adding our mission statement, which is:

Be true

Be you

Put love in what you do

We have long explanations for each of those statements—-that we have talked about as a family; but just wanted the main statement on the banner….without all the explanations.

So happy with how it turned out!

Do you have a family mission statement?  If so, what is it…..I’d love to hear about it!

  1. I love this. My kids would too. When we put them to bed at night we all touch our fists together & say “Go Helmly’s superpowers unite” It’s cheesy I know but they look forward to it everynight. We like watching superhero movies like Spiderman and Captain America.

    to state what is important to your kith and kin
