DIY: A True Love Story Never Ends Print {PERFECT Valentine’s Gift}

 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:

Hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

$4 Wine cabinet easy update

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 This should inspire you to break out your own can of spray paint and do a little re-vamping on your outdated furniture.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

I’m really loving the nice burst of color it brings to the dining room

What do you think?
