All Signs Lead to Love, Repurposing a Wood Plaque


Love Makes the World Go 'Round.
Love the One You're With.
What the World Needs Now is Love, Sweet Love.

And the list goes on and on and on.  
So many beautiful lyrics.

With Valentine's Day in a few days, I decided to update a chicken wire frame that read "NEST."
While this might be a great word for a birdhouse, I prefer something a little more meaningful.
And softer colors.  With a little paint, I covered the blue frame with ASCP Old White and lightly distressed it.  Then I covered the red square blocks with Duck Egg Blue.  I stamped L, V & E on three of the blocks.
I transferred an old-fashioned graphic in place of the "O."  This graphic reads "Check Mate" on a heart with two people playing a game.  Then I added a little red & white twine.
Easy as can be.  
It left me plenty of time to bake some Valentine's cookies.
Happy Valentine's Day!
