LOVE sign February 8, 2017 – Posted in: crafts, home decorating, painting, valentines day, winter

I painted a sign last fall, but I didn’t like it. Not everything that I make is beautiful and blog-worthy. Some things are kind of a flop, but I am usually stubborn enough to keep on trying. (There is your crafting tip for the day: Be stubborn sometimes.)

So, because I felt like it, I painted over the whole thing in red and made a giant LOVE sign for Valentine’s Day. It was actually really easy- simple, white block letters and lots of sanding to distress. I didn’t worry about perfect lettering because the entire thing was meant to be rustic. All of those layers of paint underneath from the sign I didn’t like show through from sanding and just add to the character.

I am not really big into Valentine’s Day decorations, but the bright pop of red really stands out and adds a little something cheerful to all of the drear of winter. And the sign I didn’t like has been turned into something that I LOVE. (cheesy pun intended)
