Since doing the Love Wall in our living room I kept feeling like there was something missing.
I had seen this on Pinterest awhile ago & loved it
So I started browsing Etsy for this print. I found one I wanted for $60 + $20 shipping eekks
then I thought why don’t I just make my own print?! I did a goggle image search for “fuchsia” (since that’s the color I wanted the background to be) then I busted out Picnik, decided on a font I liked – I chose FF Oxide Stencil font
And there you have it! I spray painted the antique love story frame that was used in our wedding + the large frame in the middle. I used Glossy White Rust-oleum spray paint. I was so over the dark color wood. What do you think? Better right?
This would make THE cutest Valentine’s Day gift, not to mention it’s quick & easy and costs practically no money to make!
I really think the white brightens up the wall + I’m loving the fuchsia love print!
To remind you, here’s what the wall looked like Pre – Benjamin Moore Bird’s Egg paint:
Do you have any cute Valentine’s gift ideas? Do share!
Hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

You all know how I love me some spray paint. This is probably the easiest & cheapest DIY project of all time. This should inspire you to break out your own can of spray paint and do a little re-vamping on your outdated furniture. I actually sprayed my little wine cabinet a couple of months ago.. I was holding off on this post, in hopes of finding some super adorable new knobs to really transform the piece, but i couldn’t find anything small enough. Oh well it’s still cute!
This wine cabinet is from Pier 1 and was purchased approx. 5 years ago! I remember it being something like $200 ?! I would never pay that now. Jesus Pier One is so overpriced (compared to what you can find out there nowadays)
I was SO sick of the barf green color – OMG
After two thin coats of Rust-oleum Satin Lagoon, we have a whole new look. I was too lazy to sand or prime, but I think it came out perfect.
I think Rust-oleum satin finish spray paints give just the right amount of shine.
I love that the shabby chic cabinet goes so perfectly with the wine cabinet
To see how I easily created the below shabby chic burlap & paper lined cabinet – click here
I’m really loving the nice burst of color it brings to the dining room
What do you think?
